Update 2 p.m.: Lieutenant Troy Dangerfield told us that the 25-year-old Asian woman is still in critical condition after being hit by a food delivery truck this morning. He said the cyclist made an illegal left hand turn in front of the truck when she was hit. The woman, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.

Update 10:08 a.m.: Police just sent out a release correcting their previous statement that the cyclist had been killed. Officer Albie Esparza is now saying that the woman is at the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Original story 9:14 a.m.: Traffic is backed up near the Embarcadero after a cyclist was killed at the intersection of Fremont and Mission streets this morning.

A truck collided with the cyclist at about 8:04 a.m., said Officer Albie Esparza. Police are at the scene. No further details were available at this time.


Last week, a speeding cyclist hit a 60-year-old woman as she walked through the crosswalk along Mission street. In that case, the cyclist blew a red light and hit the woman, who remains in the hospital with a life-threatening head injury.
