Reader Mail: An Urgent Call For Witnesses to an N-Judah/Car Crash in March

In early March, the N-Judah crashed into a car, and the person driving the car is the grandmother of Reader David. In the aftermath of said accident, David’s grandmother suffered significant injuries. Now, in an attempt to better understand what happened, David’s family is searching for more information from eyewitnesses who saw the accident and can shed some light on the sequence of events. If you know of any information, please contact him at the email listed in his email. Thanks!

Almost two months ago, on March 3, 2011, my grandmother’s car collided with the N Judah light rail train at Judah and 24th Avenue.
As a result of the accident, she sustained a skull fracture, broken bones (collar bone, sternum, and four ribs), and deep lacerations on her legs. She was hospitalized at San Francisco General Hospital for nearly four weeks, and has only recently returned home. Her life has permanently changed, as she now needs constant supervision when eating, walking, and using the bathroom.
As far as I can tell, the only media coverage of the event is this SF Examiner article and this SF Appeal article. To better understand what happened on March 3, our family is searching for any witnesses of the accident.
Were you in the immediate area of the N Judah accident on March 3 (or do you know anyone who recalls the scene)?
Were you on board the outbound N Judah Muni train on March 3 (or was anyone you know on board the Muni train)?
Do you live near the intersection of Judah and 24th (or do you know anyone who lives in this area)?
If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, please contact me at Thank you for your attention to this urgent personal appeal
