Cyclist Killed By Semi Truck Was SOMA PR Agency Employee

A bicyclist who was struck and killed by a semi truck in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood Wednesday morning has been identified by the medical examiner’s office as 24-year-old Amelie Le Moullac.

The San Francisco resident was struck at 7:07 a.m. at Sixth and Folsom streets by a truck making a turn at the intersection.

Le Moullac worked at Voce Communications, a PR agency located near the city’s South Park neighborhood, an employee there confirmed this morning.

The truck driver stopped and cooperated with investigators. The driver was not cited and the collision remains under investigation, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition issued a statement following the crash, calling it “yet another tragic reminder of what can happen when bikes and large trucks mix on our city’s high-speed corridors.”

The fatal collision is San Francisco’s third involving a bicyclist in 2013 and all three have also involved a large truck, according to the coalition, which called on the city to move forward with a redesign of Folsom Street.

“Folsom Street is one of the city’s few designated bike routes to downtown—yet it is still an intimidating street, with no separation between bike riders and fast-moving traffic,” the coalition’s statement said.

The coalition also called for all large trucks to be fitted with convex mirrors so drivers can more easily see bicyclists and pedestrians.
