Update (8:25 p.m.): MTA says that the operators of the Muni vehicles were also taken to hospitals.
Update (7:10 p.m.): MTA reports that five people were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and 10 were treated at the scene of the accident.
Update (6:26 p.m.): The Examiner reports that 13 were injured, and that an automobile was also involved.
Original post: SF Appeal has the story; unknown injured. MTA reports injuries, but number and nature are unknown as of yet. We’ll update this post when we get more info.
What is so puzzling to me was that with all the SFPD standing around, not a single one of them had got out onto Market/2nd and directed traffic! It was a total cluster, with the trolley, buss, firetrucks, ambulances, SFPD vehicles…. and commute traffic, and commutee pedestrian traffic – a total cluster!
I can’t find this story in the Chorn/Examiner. It looked like a pretty big deal yesterday as Market Street outbound was stopped during rush hour and multiple ambulances were on the scene taking people out. But not a peep.
David, do you mean the print versions of those papers? Both of their sites have a couple stories up. I have no idea about the print versions.
