Public Transportation Accident

Four Injured in San Francisco Cable Car Accident

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on November 21, 2009 - Comments off

Four people were injured in a San Francisco cable car accident on the San Francisco Municipal Railway on November 21, 2009, when the cable car stopped without warning causing them to fall. The car stopped because a strand on the underground cable had started to detach. Cable cars use the cable to drive the cars along San Francisco’s many hills.
According to police, the injured people included the cable car conductor, gripman, and two other passengers. The initial investigation reveals that the cable car operator was unable to release the cable car grip from the partially torn cable and the conductor then asked central control to shut down the system. At the time of the accident, the car was headed to Fisherman’s Wharf.
At this time it is too early to determine whether a legal claim can be made on behalf of the injured victims. However, if the strand detached from the cable due to a manufacturer’s defect or poor maintenance, a claim may be successfully made.
