Authorities have finally identified the man who was killed by a Muni bus while walking through Hayes Valley last month as 42-year-old Joel Lambert.

Lambert was hit by the 21-Hayes bus near Fillmore and Hayes streets around 10:45 a.m. on March 25 after he walked out from between two parked cars, according to police. He was pinned and stuck under the bus, and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he later died.

However, Lambert, a San Francisco resident, had not been carrying identification at the time of the accident, and the county coroner was unable to identify him. Earlier this week, authorities released a sketch of Lambert, asking if anyone knew him.  

The San Francisco Police Department was able to help identify Lambert through its missing person's department. The driver of the Muni bus has since been placed on non-driving status, pending

an investigation into the accident, according to Muni.

  • 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.'"
