Muni Driver Mistakes his Bus for a Train?

This happened on Sunday morning near the intersection of Ocean and Junipero Serra. The bus has since been removed from the K-Ingleside tracks. Streetsblog got this photo via a tip. It's unclear how the bus ended up on the tracks. Paul Rose, a spokesman for SFMTA, only said that, "The operator of the bus drove on the tracks at that location. We had to get a tow truck to remove it. Shuttles provided service through the area to West Portal."

For those not familiar with the intersection, the K-Ingleside train runs on streetcar tracks on Ocean, and then continues on regular train tracks after the station on Junipero Serra. It's tempting to speculate how a bus driver, especially if he normally drives a light-rail vehicle, could make this mistake.
