The San Francisco Medical Examiner has identified the man killed in this morning's U.C. San Francisco shuttlebus crash: 52-year-old Kevin Mack of San Francisco.

Mack was thrown from the vehicle and pinned beneath a big rig that collided with the bus. He died on the scene. Three others were injured in the 6:20 a.m. crash. They were en route to San Francisco General Hospital for the day's shift.

Mack was a psychiatrist who served as a U.C. San Francisco associate professor and also worked at San Francisco General.

Leslie Dubbin, San Francisco General's director for clinical operations, described Mack as "a lovely, generous, kind soul. He will be sadly missed."

  • 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.'"
