Update 2 p.m.: Lieutenant Troy Dangerfield told us that the 25-year-old Asian woman is still in critical condition after being hit by a food delivery truck this morning. He said the cyclist made an illegal left hand turn in front of the truck when she was hit. The woman, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.

Update 10:08 a.m.: Police just sent out a release correcting their previous statement that the cyclist had been killed. Officer Albie Esparza is now saying that the woman is at the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Original story 9:14 a.m.: Traffic is backed up near the Embarcadero after a cyclist was killed at the intersection of Fremont and Mission streets this morning.

A truck collided with the cyclist at about 8:04 a.m., said Officer Albie Esparza. Police are at the scene. No further details were available at this time.

Last week, a speeding cyclist hit a 60-year-old woman as she walked through the crosswalk along Mission street. In that case, the cyclist blew a red light and hit the woman, who remains in the hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

  • 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.'"
