  • Cyclist dies

The cyclist who was hit by a truck yesterday morning as she rode along Mission Street downtown died last night. Medical authorities identified the victim as 25-year-old Nancy Ho, a San Francisco resident.

Ho was hit yesterday at about 8:04 a.m. when she made an illegal left-hand turn at the intersection of Mission and Fremont. A food delivery truck collided with Ho, who was not wearing a helmet at the time, police said.


Lieutenant Troy Dangerfield told SF Weekly that Ho must have miscalculated her turn.

Last week, a speeding cyclist blew a red light and hit a 60-year-old woman

as she walked through a crosswalk at Mission and Embarcadero. The woman remains in the

hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
