Original post: Beth just wrote to let us know about an alert she got: “All Outbound MUNI Trains from Civic Center Station are Stopped.”
SF Weekly reports that a man’s leg was severed by a Muni vehicle. Details are still coming in, but the victim is reportedly alive and at the hospital.
We’ll do our best to keep you updated, but as of now, Civic Center is still closed.
I arrived at West Portal at Noon toady, to utter chaos. Hundreds of people trying to crowd on one shuttle bus with one seriously angry MUNI employee trying to arrange everything. In the end some crazy guy yelled at her ‘JUST SCRAPE THE BODY OFF THE TRACKS AND GET THE F**KING tunnel open’ Not the most respectful thing I’ve ever come across.
I read some reports that the guy who was killed was drunk and rolled onto the tracks, I wonder if that is true?
We know 🙁 Just posted an eyewitness account: http://www.munidiaries.com/2012/04/23/witness-of-muni-accident-at-civic-center/
