Five people were injured in a crash between a San Francisco Municipal Railway light-rail vehicle and a truck in the city's Bayview District this morning, Muni and fire department officials said.

The collision was reported around 9:15 a.m. in the area of Third Street and Egbert Avenue, San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

The truck apparently made a left turn in front of the Muni vehicle. The Muni operator and four passengers reported neck and knee injuries and were taken to a hospital, Muni spokesman Paul Rose said. The injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Talmadge said fire crews cleared the scene as of 10:08 a.m.

Muni light-rail vehicles on the K-Ingleside and T-Third lines turned around at Third Street and Armstrong Avenue because of the collision and bus shuttles took passengers around the scene of the crash.
