Collision with Muni Metro Vehicle Seriously Injures Bicyclist

A collision this morning between an M-Ocean View Muni Metro light rail vehicle and a male bicyclist has left the cyclist in the hospital with serious injuries.

The collision occurred around 10:30 a.m. at the intersection of Randolph and Arch Streets, and authorities were still clearing the scene until noon, said MTA spokesperson Judson True. The cyclist, whose name has not been released, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.

According to a Muni service alert, the bicyclist was "reportedly travelling southbound (downhill) on Arch Street and struck the right side of the M Ocean View LRV as it travelled inbound (westbound) on Randolph Street through the intersection." The intersection is controlled by four-way stop signs. SFPD and the MTA are investigating the collision.

Service on the M-Ocean View has been restored. We’ll have more information as we get it.
