 7 Hurt as San Francisco Cable Car Suddenly Stops to Avoid Crash in Nob Hill

Seven Cable Car Passengers Treated for Minor Injuries

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (Oct. 10, 2023) — Seven people were treated for minor injuries after a Cable Car they were riding on suddenly stopped to avoid hitting a car Monday at Washington and Taylor Streets on Nob Hill.

The incident happened at around 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 9th on the Powell-Hyde line, ABC 7 News reports. The cable car operator activated his slot blade or emergency brake to avoid crashing into a vehicle that was stopped on the tracks, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

There were 16 passengers aboard the cable car and some of them fell over when it abruptly stopped. Paramedics responded and rushed six of the injured to a hospital, but there were no serious injuries reported.

Also, the cable car became stuck and Muni crews towed it back to the barn.

The case remains under investigation.
