Dionette Cherney has been identified as the 68-year-old woman who died early this morning from injuries caused when she was hit by a cyclist last month as she crossed the street near the Embarcadero. Police say Cherney died at 5:20 a.m.
The Washington, D.C., resident was in the crosswalk at Mission Street at about 8:30 a.m. on her way to the Embarcadero when a speeding cyclist blew a red light and hit her.
Cherney suffered a major head injury.
Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza told SF Weekly that the SFPD has forwarded the case to the District Attorney's Office, which will decide whether to file criminal charges.
Meanwhile, police are reminding cyclists that the rules of the road also apply to them.
