SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)--A man who became trapped under a San Francisco Municipal Railway  streetcar on Market Street Friday morning apparently fell when he attempted to board while the vehicle was still moving, a Muni spokesman said.
     
The rider fell under the inbound F-Market & Wharves streetcar at  Seventh and Market streets shortly before 10 a.m., Muni spokesman Paul Rose  said.
     
The victim, a male, was transported to a hospital with injuries  that are not considered life-threatening, Rose said.
     
Buses carried passengers between 11th Street and the Ferry  Building until the accident was cleared from the area shortly after 11 a.m.
     
The driver has been put on non-driving status while the incident  is investigated, which is standard Muni policy, Rose said.
