SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A 35-year-old man who was hanging on a double gas tanker truck as it drove on a San Francisco street has died after he fell and the rig ran over him.

Police don’t yet know why the man was hanging on the truck between its two gas tanks. The man fell as the truck made a turn late Tuesday.

The driver of the gas tanker didn’t stop, and investigators are still working to locate the truck and identity its company.

Witnesses told investigators that the driver may not have realized the man was on the truck or that he hit and killed him.

The name of the man who died hasn’t been released.
