SF city worker killed in accident was one of few female plumbers with city

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - We're learning more about the city worker who was hit by a car, which rolled off a tow truck Wednesday in San Francisco.

Lilianna Preciado was also the mother of a 3-year-old. 

A San Francisco Public Utilities worker was in tears after the loss of Preciado, a plumber who was fixing a hole when a car being put on the bed of a tow truck rolled off the back and hit her. 

The impact later proved to be fatal. 

"There were three in that hole. Two guys jumped out right away, they saw the car coming and jumped out, but she was still there," a woman said. 

Preciado was hit by the rolling car and was alive when she was taken to the hospital where she died. 

Preciado was one of the few female plumbers with the City of San Francisco. 

The Mayor issued a statement Wednesday calling her a valued employee. 

A witness says the tow truck driver had been complaining before the accident. 

"There was some sorta problem," she said. 

Her fellow workers say this has been very difficult.
