This driver of this pick-up truck, according to authorities, is responsible for the hit-run death of noted San Francisco attorney Donald Casper, who died over the weekend. Casper, 63, was jogging eastbound along the south edge of River Road just west of Wilshire Drive when he was hit by the vehicle. SF Chronicle notes: The photo of the truck was taken by a surveillance camera at Korbel Champagne Cellars on River Road moments before the crash...The vehicle was passing Korbel at the time and was not coming from the winery."
A fourth-generation San Franciscan, Casper was at Jacobs, Spotswood and Casper. "He was serving as a member of the San Francisco Civil Service Commission after being appointed by Mayor Willie Brown in 2000."
Mayor Lee ordered flags at the City Hall to be flown at half staff today in remembrance of Casper.
