Muni training coach hits building in Japantown 

Muni reported its second minor accident of the day this afternoon after a Muni training coach struck a light pole and a building on Laguna between Post and Sutter.

The accident, which happened at 1:26 p.m., affected overhead wires and stopped normal service on the 3 Jackson line but injured no one.  Muni set up a motor coach service for 3 Jackson riders between Fillmore and Sutter and downtown, while regular bus service continued West of the accident.

Earlier in the day, two people were slightly hurt after the mirror of a 71-Haight-Noriega Muni bus swiped a historic F-Market street car downtown.

An injured passenger of the F-line complained of pain but declined to be taken to the hospital, San Francisco Fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge said. The operator of the street car was “a little shaken,” in the crash, she said.  The operator is receiving medical attention but has not been taken to the hospital, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency spokesman Judson True said.

The 11:20 a.m. crash occurred near the intersection of Market and Grant streets, True said. The street car was traveling outbound on Market Street when it was struck by the mirror of the inbound 71 bus.

The accident disrupted F-Market service between the Ferry Building and Van Ness Avenue but has now been cleared, True said.
