Medical authorities identified the man who was hit by a Muni bus yesterday afternoon as 71-year-old Manuel Tomaneng.

Tomaneng was reportedly on his way to work at about 12:19 p.m. when he crossed in front of the 14-L bus as it was pulling away from the bus zone at Fifth and Mission streets, said Paul Rose, spokesman for Muni. The bus ran over his legs, and the man's lunch bag was found next to him.

The Muni operator was placed on nondriving status pending an investigation, Rose said. "We are working with police to investigate the matter," Rose said. "We are questioning the operator now, but it is too early to say exactly what happened."

  • 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.'"
