Man survives after being pushed into oncoming Muni train in San Francisco

A San Francisco man is recovering after being pushed into the path of an oncoming light-rail train Sunday during a fight, police said.

The man suffered serious head injuries after being hit by the train at the Civic Center station. He and another man were fighting at about 9 p.m. on the station platform near the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency rail line, said Officer Grace Gatpandan.

One man was shoved onto the tracks and struck by the Muni light-rail vehicle. The other fled before police arrived and remains at large.

The man struck by the train was pushed hard enough that he broke a window on the train, KGO-TV reported. Police will be examining surveillance video from the platform, according to KGO.
