According to San Francisco Police Officer Eric Chaing, there was a stop at the intersection, but the driver did not obey the traffic rule.

The car was hit by the N-Judah headed toward downtown and pushed about 20 feet.

The driver of the passenger vehicle was transported to the hospital, with injuries to her legs, but was considered non-life threatening, Chaing said.

No one on the N-Judah train was injured, according to Rose.

Per Muni protocol, the driver of the train was placed on non-driving status and will have drug and alcohol tests administered.

Shuttle buses were in place for nearly four hours, transporting passengers between 19th Avenue and La Playa Street, according to Rose.

The intersection opened around 6 p.m., Chaing said, and regular Muni service resumed.
