The father of a 16-year-old boy killed last week in San Francisco’s Western Addition by a speeding motorist made a plea Monday for the city’s motorists to slow down.
“We cannot comprehend why anyone would be driving 80 miles an hour in the streets of San Francisco,” said the father of Kevin San, a Lincoln High School junior killed just before 7 a.m. Friday on Pine Street near Gough Street.
"Instead of Kevin, it could’ve been any one of our children in our community - please, everyone, slow down!" said Hong Man San, through an interpreter.
On Saturday, police arrested Jennie Zhu, 58, in the crash that left San’s mother and sister seriously injured in addition to three other people in a nearby catering van.
Zhu, who suffered minor injuries, has since posted $300,000 bail.
Police say Zhu was apparently speeding at up to 80 mph in her Mercedes-Benz when she hit the San family minivan and the catering truck. She faces charges of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.
keep the crazy asian woman drivers stereotype going, because stuff like this lends to its credibility.
