Muni delayed after driver injured in collision with L-Taraval train

A driver was injured on Sunday afternoon when their vehicle collided with a Muni train in the Outer Sunset, a transit official said.

The collision near Taraval Street and 43rd Avenue prompted delays along the L-Taraval route at around 12:35 p.m., according to San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency spokesperson Paul Rose.

Rose said medics responded to treat the driver after the vehicle collided with an outbound train. Both vehicles were moving at the time of the incident.

Rose did not have details about the driver’s injury.

The SFMTA sent two bus shuttles to supplement train service between Taraval Street and Sunset Boulevard and Wawona Street and 46th Avenue, according to Rose.

No further details were immediately available.
