Separate Muni Collisions Occur Within Minutes Of Each Other In San Francisco; 4 Hurt

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) -- A total of four people were injured in two separate collisions involving San Francisco Municipal Railway vehicles that was reported within minutes of each other in San Francisco Tuesday evening, a Muni spokesman said.

The first collision happened at Martin Luther King Jr. and Music Concourse drives at 5:29 p.m., Muni spokesman Paul Rose.

A Muni bus and tour bus had collided into each other and two people suffered minor injuries, a fire department spokeswoman said.

The bus operator was transported to a hospital for a back injury, Rose said.

The spokeswoman did not have further details on the second injury.

The second collision was reported at 5:34 p.m. when a car apparently made a left turn in front of a Muni light-rail vehicle at Mission Bay Boulevard and Third Street, Rose said.

Three people were transported to a hospital and Rose did not know the severity of their injuries.

The collision resulted in southbound T-Third trains to switch back at Third and Channel streets and a bus shuttle was set up for passengers but service has since been restored to normal, according to Muni officials.
