New bike lane to be added in SF's SoMa district following cyclist's death

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - A busy San Francisco intersection is adding a bike lane after a cyclist was killed last Friday. 

30-year-old Tess Rothstein was hit and killed by a truck near Sixth and Howard Streets. 

The part of Howard Street where Rothstein died did not have a protected bike lane. 

So now officials will be adding physical barriers on the north side of the street. 

Rothstein's death is the fourth traffic-related death on Howard Street in the past three years.
