Muni vehicles crashed twice Monday, including an incident where a train collided with a motorcycle.

The motorcyclist was treated by paramedics for minor injuries at the 23rd and Church streets scene, the transit agency said.

The crash resulted in minor damage to both vehicles and a 30-minute delay, with two shuttle buses being deployed for passengers.

A Muni bus was also involved in what the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency say was a "hit and run" at Mission and 24th streets. There were no injuries and only minor delays and damage.

San Francisco police confirmed the crash at 23rd and Church streets, but did not have any further information related to either incident.

Muni-related crashes most commonly occurred last year near 16th and Mission streets, based on data reviewed by The Standard.

Two Muni trains also crashed at the Embarcadero in November.

*Correction: This story previously said another crash involved Muni when it in fact did not.
