San Francisco police say it was 58-year-old Jennie Zhu who allegedly plowed down a minivan last Friday, killing 16-year-old Kevin San and critically injuring his mother and sister.

Zhu was booked into San Francisco County Jail Friday and charged with vehicular manslaughter and two traffic infractions. She was quickly released on $300,000 bail.

Police say Zhu was driving a Mercedes at a high-rate of speed, possibly 80 mph, for several blocks before hitting the minivan, sending it airborne on Gough and Pine streets. The van rolled over, killing San instantly. San was a Lincoln High School student where he was a member of the ROTC drum corps.

Grief counselors will be at the high school today assisting students and teachers.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
