SFMTA, SFPD and CPUC Investigate After Pedestrian Fatally Hit by Muni Light Rail Train


SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — A person has been struck and killed by a Muni light rail in San Francisco. The SFPD is now among the agencies investigating.

The SFMTA, SFPD and California Public Utilities Commission are reviewing detailed footage from near Arleta Station in San Francisco after a pedestrian was killed by a light rail in San Francisco.

SFMTA says it happened around 9am Sunday night and involved a T-3rd light rail.

A San Francisco police spokesperson said the SFPD responded just after 10 p.m. on Bayshore Boulevard and Arleta Avenue to meet with Muni staff regarding human remains found on Muni’s tracks.

“The medical examiner is investigating this incident. Our Motor Vehicle Collision Investigation Unit also responded to the scene and are currently investigating how this may have happened,” said Constable Robert Rueca.

Based on their video review, the SFMTA says investigators will make recommendations on what, if anything, could prevent a collision like this from happening again.

It is not known how far the pedestrian may have been carried by the train.

“The scene extended for several hundred meters but this is not necessarily the area where the victim could have been dragged,” said agent Rueca.

The SFMTA says it sends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of the stricken person.
