SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - Officials have identified the city worker who was hit and killed by a tow truck in San Francisco Wednesday afternoon.
The victim has been identified as Lilianna Preciado.
"Our City family is mourning today following the death of Lilianna Preciado, a valued employee with the Public Utilities Commission.
We are incredibly saddened anytime a member of the City family passes away, but it is particularly painful when an individual perishes while working on the behalf of San Francisco.
