  • Seriously.

Update 3:52 p.m.: The Medical Examiner's Office says it was 60-year-old Becky Lee of San Francisco who was killed yesterday evening while walking through the Sunnyside neighborhood.

Original Story 11:16 .m.: A woman in her 50's was hit by a pickup truck last night as she walked through the Sunnyside neighborhood near Balboa Park.

The Medical Examiner's Officer says they have identified the victim, but would not release her name because they have yet to notify family.

According to police, the woman was walking through a crosswalk at Judson and Edna streets just before 7 p.m. when the pickup truck rammed into her.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with head trauma; she later died at the hospital.

The driver in the pickup truck, a 42-year-old woman, wasn't arrested and remained on the scene where she cooperated with the cops, said Officer Gordon Shyy. Police will continue to investigate how the accident occurred.

  • 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.'"
