The medical examiner's office identified the man killed in yesterday's bike accident as 21-year-old Dylan Mitchell. The fatal incident, if you recall, happened on Thursday morning at the intersection of 16th Street and South Van Ness in the city's Mission neighborhood. A garbage truck struck Mitchell, dragging him several yards.
The victim died at the scene.
"Mitchell, who was traveling at a high rate of speed, collided with the rear of the truck. He was not wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead at the scene," according to SF Appeal. "The driver of the truck eventually stopped at the scene after the mangled white bicycle ended up a block away along a curb on 17th Street."
The garbage truck company, Recology, issued a statement to the family offering their condolences.
