The cyclist who was hit by a truck yesterday morning as she rode along Mission Street downtown died last night. Medical authorities identified the victim as 25-year-old Nancy Ho, a San Francisco resident.

Ho was hit yesterday at about 8:04 a.m. when she made an illegal left-hand turn at the intersection of Mission and Fremont. A food delivery truck collided with Ho, who was not wearing a helmet at the time, police said.


Lieutenant Troy Dangerfield told SF Weekly that Ho must have miscalculated her turn.

Last week, a speeding cyclist blew a red light and hit a 60-year-old woman

as she walked through a crosswalk at Mission and Embarcadero. The woman remains in the

hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
