When I went out this evening to find someplace to have dinner, I encountered this scene on Powell Street near Market Street. If you’re not familiar with San Francisco, Powell Street ends at the cable car turnaround on Market Street, where no cars are allowed on the last block. That’s exactly where this cab hit the cable cars.
According to witnesses, the cab’s brakes failed and he lost control. Fortunately no one was seriously injured, although both the cab and a cable car were damaged.
