Update (3:21 p.m.): Sad news, you guys. The victim, whose name hasn’t been released, has taken a turn for the worse. SFGate reports that her condition has gone from serious to critical.

Original post: An M-Ocean View struck a pedestrian at 19th Avenue and Junipero Serra yesterday evening. According to Bay City News (via SF Appeal):

The 19-year-old pedestrian was struck by a Muni vehicle on the M-Ocean View line. She suffered head trauma and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where she was in serious but stable condition as of this morning, according to police.

It’s unclear whether the vehicle was an M-Ocean View light-rail or shuttle bus; SF Weekly reports that it was a bus, while SF Appeal says it was an LRV. We’ll update as we learn more about the incident.
