Medical authorities identified 48-year-old Diane Sullivan as the woman who was killed while riding her bike across from AT&T Park Saturday morning.

Officers were called out to the intersection of King and Third streets just before 10 a.m. as crowds gathered for the Giants Fan Fest. When they arrived, they found Sullivan with life-threatening injuries.

Here's what happened:

Both the Sullivan and the truck driver were heading west on King Street when, for unknown reasons, they collided; the truck dragged the woman before coming to a full stop, according to police. The driver stopped immediately after the crash and did cooperate with police. Alcohol and drugs were not suspected in the accident, police said.

"You do have a big cement truck with a big wheel base and preliminary reports are that [Sullivan] was curbside on her bike, riding, and somehow became entangled," said San Francisco police Sgt. Frank Harre told KTVU.

Sullivan was taken to a local hospital where she later died.

  • 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.'"
