A 60-year-old retired teacher from Illinois has died from a head injury after falling from a pedicab in downtown San Diego, the medical examiner reported today.

Sharon Miller was in San Diego to attend the National Education Assn. convention. She hit her head on the street after the pedicab in which she and another woman were riding tipped over late Saturday.

The pedicabs are a popular mode of transportation among tourists visiting downtown.
