Newspaper vendor dies after hit-and-run

The Chron reports that Richard Brielh, 77, an independent contractor who deliverered the Chron and other papers, died Friday from injuries he received in a hit-and-run near San Francisco's Nob Hill. Brielh, a Korean War veteran who sold newspapers for 35 years, was struck by a car at 5:30 a.m. on May 29 near his newsstand at California and Hyde streets. He was carried on the hood of the car for about 25 feet before the driver stopped. When Brielh fell off, the driver continued east on California toward Leavenworth Street. Police have made no arrests.
