The homeless man who was run over while sleeping in front of a driveway last week has been identified as 55-year-old Elvis Presley, according to the San Francisco Medical Examiner.

Presley, a San Francisco resident, was snoozing away when a 28-year-old woman backed out of her driveway on the 500 block of Third Street, and rolled right over him.

Presley was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. The woman cooperated with police and was not arrested, police said.

  • 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.'"
