The 65-year-old woman struck and killed by a U.C. San Francisco shuttle bus yesterday has been identified by the San Francisco Medical Examiner's office. Releasing her name to the general public may take a while, however, as her family must first be notified -- and getting a hold of them will require going through an undisclosed consulate.

The foreign-born San Francisco resident was walking through the crosswalk at Geary and Leavenworth a shade before 12:30 p.m. yesterday when the shuttle turned left and ran into her. Sadly, when the driver backed up, he ran over the woman a second time.

No one aboard the "blue line" shuttle -- between U.C. San Francisco hospital, General Hospital, UCSF Mission Bay, and Mount Zion Hospital --  was injured.

Update: The woman's name was Nu Ha Dam. Her country of origin is still being determined.

  • 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.'"
