SAN FRANCISCO—A bicyclist died on Wednesday, August 14, after colliding with a big-rig at the intersection of Sixth Street and Folsom Street.  The accident took place just after 7 a.m. when the driver of the truck reportedly tried to make a right turn, where he then hit the bicyclist.

The 30-year-old female victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital. Doctors attempted to treat her for her life-threatening injuries, but were unable to revive the victim. The intersection where the incident occurred was closed off for several hours, before being re-opened to commuters.
