The Medical Examiner has identified the man who was run over by a large truck yesterday afternoon in the city's SOMA neighborhood as 47-year-old Sena Putra of Oakland.

Putra was walking at 13th and Folsom streets just before 1 p.m. when a truck traveling east on Folsom made a right onto 13th Street and hit Putra, police said.

Officer Carlos Manfredi said the driver of the truck pulled over immediately and has been cooperating with police.

Putra was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he later died.

Police are still investigating the circumstances of the collision, and could not yet say whether Putra was in a crosswalk when he was killed.

  • 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.'"
