Muni Kills Sunset Pedestrian

Details are scarce, but a Muni train ran over a pedestrian in what is being described as a particularly gruesome scene by a Chronicle reporter. I’m not sure but this may be the first muni fatality for 2008, which considering we are just past 2 weeks into the new year, seems early. Especially in light that a pedestrian was struck on the N line just last week.

This quote from the SFGate story is particularly disconcerting: “Janis Yuen, the Municipal Railway spokeswoman, would only confirm that the N Judah train was heading toward downtown and that “a light rail vehicle and a person made contact.”

If being dragged for a couple of blocks under a train is “making contact” then she is right on the money. I hope the total lack of compassion that statement represents is not the majority sentiment at the MTA. But it’s pretty alarming considering Janis is the SPOKESWOMAN.
