An unidentified man was killed last night after falling off a moving fuel truck in the Tenderloin District. 

Officer Gordon Shyy says just before midnight, the pedestrian, for unknown reasons, had been hanging onto a double gas tanker truck, in the space between the two gas tanks. As the truck made a turn onto Turk Street, the man fell and was run over by the truck. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene. 
"The driver of the gas tanker may have no knowledge of this collision due to the circumstances of this collision," Shyy says. "Investigators are still working to locate the gas tanker and identity the company."

Anyone with information about this incident should contact police at (415) 575-4444.

  • 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.'"
