Authorities have finally identified the man who was killed by a Muni bus while walking through Hayes Valley last month as 42-year-old Joel Lambert.
Lambert was hit by the 21-Hayes bus near Fillmore and Hayes streets around 10:45 a.m. on March 25 after he walked out from between two parked cars, according to police. He was pinned and stuck under the bus, and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he later died.
However, Lambert, a San Francisco resident, had not been carrying identification at the time of the accident, and the county coroner was unable to identify him. Earlier this week, authorities released a sketch of Lambert, asking if anyone knew him.
