This happened back in July, only heard about it today.

An A320 inbound San Francisco Runway 28R at night mistook taxiway C for 28R, while 28L was out and its lights switched of. With 2*787, 1*A340 and 1*737 lined up on C, the inbound aircraft came within 59 ft as the pilots realized their mistake and initiated a go-around mere seconds away from one of the most disastrous crashes in aviation history.

Aviation Herald: Incident: Canada A320 at San Francisco on Jul 7th 2017, lined up with taxiway for landing

I sure hope the final NTSB report will go into detail on how this could have happened and, more importantly, how this can be avoided in the future.
