The N-Judah has just been found to be the most accident-prone Muni line, according the San Francisco Examiner.

The line, which carries passengers from Ocean Beach to the Caltrain station on Fourth and King streets, was involved in 84 collisions between 2008 and 2011, making it far more accident-prone than the five other Muni train lines.

The Examiner collected data from 2008 to 2011. But there may be a reason that the N-Judah has the most number of accidents, according to the SFMTA. From the Examiner:

The N-Judah carries more people and requires more service than any other Muni line, which is one reason it has so many accidents, said spokesman Paul Rose of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. He said the agency is seeking ways to make the line safer, and he noted that accidents have dropped for the past three years.
