Man In Wheelchair Hit, Killed By SF Muni Train At Civic Center Station

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) - A man in a wheelchair who was struck by a San Francisco Municipal Railway train at the Civic Center station late Monday morning has died, Muni spokesman Paul Rose said.

The man, identified Tuesday as 62-year-old San Francisco resident Daniel Dillen, was struck by an outbound M-Ocean View train around 11:45 a.m., Rose said.

The man's leg was severed and he was taken to a hospital, where he died, Rose said.

KCBS' Susan Kennedy Reports:

San Francisco police responded to the Civic Center station to investigate the incident, he said.

Rose said it was not clear Dillen the man was on the tracks.

After the collision, Muni Metro service was shut down between the Embarcadero and West Portal stations, and bus shuttles were set up to carry riders along that stretch.

Rose said underground service resumed by 1:44 p.m.
