Pickup truck collides with N-Judah train, disrupting serviceImage: SFStreets415/Instagram

A pickup truck collided with an outbound N-Judah train last night at Judah St. and 18th Ave. The collision, which occurred around 8:30 p.m., closed the street and disrupted Muni service for over an hour. 

SFPD officer Adam Lobsinger confirmed that no injuries were reported in the incident.

According to SFMTA spokesperson Paul Rose, the collision resulted from the truck's driver making an abortive U-turn in front of the oncoming N-Judah train. The truck was then pinned between the train and the adjacent traffic division, blocking other trains from passage. 

The block of Judah Street was closed off until a tow truck was able to pull the gray Toyota Tacoma pickup off the tracks.

Rose said shuttles bridged the gap in Muni service until the track was cleared. Train service was restored shortly before 10 p.m.
