Trolley riders in downtown San Diego were injured when a U.S. postal service van slammed into the trolley on which they were ridingat the intersection of G Street and Park Boulevard, with several sustaining minor injuries.
No major injuries were sustained from the crash, but two people are known to have experienced some minor bruises and bumps, reports say. One woman who was standing up was knocked down and a man in a wheelchair hit his head against the window. The driver of the mail van was not injured.
The accident occurred when one trolley had a green light when a driver of a U.S. Postal Service van ignored the light and the postal vehicle hit the trolley broadside. An investigation continues, reports say.
