Medical authorities today released the name of the wheelchair-bound man who was struck and killed by a driver in the Hayes Valley neighborhood earlier this week; 31-year-old Kenneth "Bryan" Goodwin was killed while at the intersection of Market and Octavia Monday morning.

Goodwin, a San Francisco resident, was an employee with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency where he worked as a hearing clerk.

Bill Keener, a spokesman for the EPA, told KRON4 that Goodwin, who had osteogenesis imperfecta, a genetic defect that affects the body's collagen production, also worked with disability rights groups to improve the city's policies for responding to emergencies, especially for people with disabilities.

"We're still kind of shocked about it," Keener said.

  • 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.'"
