Caltrain Hits SUV on 16th Street Tracks in San Francisco

A northbound train hit a SUV on the tracks crossing 16th Street in San Francisco Thursday morning, a Caltrain spokeswoman said.

The northbound train hit the unoccupied car at 11:25 a.m. in the city's Potrero Hill neighborhood, according to Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn.

No one was injured in the collision, Dunn said. There were about 200 people on board the train at the time.

The train stopped at the Bayshore station while a tow crew worked to remove the car from the tracks, Dunn said.

Caltrain tweeted at 12:13 p.m. that the tracks had been cleared and that trains were set to resume service:

"Tracks are cleared, trains set to resume service. NB 237 is 70 mins delayed. 139 is 40 mins down @ Bayshore. #Caltrain T12:13."

Brian Partridge, a passenger on the train, tweeted a photo of the accident.

Partridge told NBC Bay Area at 12:17 p.m. that the train had started moving and would be pulling into the 4th and King Street station momentarily.

There are no delays to southbound Caltrain service.
