The Medical Examiner has identified the man who was tragically killed by Muni yesterday morning as 62-year-old Daniel Dillen of San Francisco.

Police are still trying to understand what happened yesterday when the wheelchair-using man landed on the tracks at the Civic Center Muni station, where a train severed his leg. He later died at the hospital.

The accident shut down Muni train service for more than two hours between the Embarcadero and West Portal stations.

  • 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.'"
