A San Francisco cyclist is in critical condition today after he was pinned underneath a street sweeper vehicle when he collided with the truck early this morning in the city's SOMA neighborhood.
According to police, the accident happened about 12:30 a.m. when the street sweeper vehicle made a turn near the intersection of Sixth and Brannan streets, hitting the biker. The cyclist -- who was described as a 31-year-old man -- was dragged before the vehicle came to a stop.
Fire crews were called out to remove the victim from underneath the truck. The man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a broken pelvis and life-threatening injuries, said Officer Albie Esparza.
