Woman struck by Muni train 

A 19-year-old woman who was struck by a Muni train Thursday slid underneath the light-rail vehicle but was not run over, a transit agency spokesman said.

At 9:44 p.m., an M-Ocean View light-rail train struck the pedestrian near San Jose Avenue and Farallones Street. The woman was transported to a hospital, Muni spokesman Judson True said. The woman sustained injuries that were not life-threatening.

The intersection is near a walkway overpass for Interstate 280. The area borders the Ocean View and Outer Mission areas.

The cause of the incident was under investigation. Per Muni regulations, the driver was placed on nondriving status and will undergo drug and alcohol tests.
