Powell Street Cable Car Operator in Critical Condition After Being Struck by Car

A cable car operator is in critical condition after an accident in San Francisco.

San Francisco Fire Department spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said, based on initial reports, a cable car operator was struck by a vehicle in the 1100 block of Powell Street between Washington and Jackson streets at about 10:35 a.m. Monday.

The historic Powell Street cable car line runs north to south along that stretch.

Talmadge said the operator was apparently seen crawling out from beneath a vehicle after being struck and is in the process of being transported to a hospital for treatment.

Police have also responded to the scene to investigate the cause of the collision, Talmadge said.
