Fighting man hit by Muni train

A fight led to a male falling in front of a San Francisco Municipal Railway train and suffering a serious head injury this evening, police said Sunday.

San Francisco police Officer Grace Gatpandan said officers responded around 9 p.m. to a report of a fight at the Civic Center Muni station platform. A preliminary investigation revealed the two males were fighting when one male pushed the other into an oncoming Muni train, Gatpandan said.

The male suffered a serious head injury, she said. A fire dispatcher said the male was able to pull himself off the Muni tracks. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries, Gatpandan said.

The second male fled the scene and Gatpandan said the area will be shut down while the investigation continues.
