Sadly, a bicyclist was hit by a vehicle this morning and killed. SFPD arrived at the scene at around 10:55 a.m. at Fulton and Steiner streets. The cyclist, whose name has yet to be released, was "pronounced dead at the scene."
Who had to right of way is still under investigation.
As always, be safe out there on the road, kids. And don't forget about SFMTA's Bicycle Program meetings--which will use your input on proposed improvements to bicycle routes in San Francisco--that start tonight.
Also, there will be a Ride of Silence tonight. San Francisco Bike Coalition says:
We're deeply saddened to hear that a bicyclist was killed in a crash with a pickup truck this morning (Weds 5/21/08) at the intersection of Fulton and Steiner. We don't know the cyclist's name or much of the story yet, but we will be out riding for him and others who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways on this evening's Ride of Silence. We'll share more details on the tragedy as we learn them.
The ride in honor of the dead cyclist starts at 7 p.m. at the intersection of Fulton and Steiner.
