Medical authorities identified 48-year-old Diane Sullivan as the woman who was killed while riding her bike across from AT&T Park Saturday morning.

Officers were called out to the intersection of King and Third streets just before 10 a.m. as crowds gathered for the Giants Fan Fest. When they arrived, they found Sullivan with life-threatening injuries.

Here's what happened:

Both the Sullivan and the truck driver were heading west on King Street when, for unknown reasons, they collided; the truck dragged the woman before coming to a full stop, according to police. The driver stopped immediately after the crash and did cooperate with police. Alcohol and drugs were not suspected in the accident, police said.

"You do have a big cement truck with a big wheel base and preliminary reports are that [Sullivan] was curbside on her bike, riding, and somehow became entangled," said San Francisco police Sgt. Frank Harre told KTVU.

Sullivan was taken to a local hospital where she later died.
