Surveillance video of the scene from a nearby church shows that one of the vehicles was pushed onto the Muni tracks nearly striking a train about to leave the platform.

Alicia Marcias, who lives in the area of the incident scene, said she heard the crash happen from her home several blocks away. She reached the area just in time to see the chaotic aftermath.

Living in the area, Marcias said she often sees drivers speeding down the dangerous stretch of road. "People race here," she said.
