Man killed walking
The Medical Examiner has identified the man who was run over by a large truck yesterday afternoon in the city's SOMA neighborhood as 47-year-old Sena Putra of Oakland.

Putra was walking at 13th and Folsom streets just before 1 p.m. when a truck traveling east on Folsom made a right onto 13th Street and hit Putra, police said.

Officer Carlos Manfredi said the driver of the truck pulled over immediately and has been cooperating with police.

Putra was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he later died.

Police are still investigating the circumstances of the collision, and could not yet say whether Putra was in a crosswalk when he was killed.
