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.

I would like to know what this toad does for a living that she could post 300 grand "so quickly" after wrecking a Mercedes. I heard she didn't even have to answer questions after killing this child because she was crying?! So which Chinese communist party official is this woman really related to and how fast will this be swept under the rug?

Time to stop making Asian comments and open your eyes instead of your mouth. Asians are slowly taking over San Fransico and soon they will own the city. Blacks are already moving out ans soon the whites will also.

We're losing the City. Shortly it will be the Chinese owned city controlled by the government of china.

She'll never see the inside of a court room. If she could afford to wreck a Mercedes and quickly pay $300,000 for bail, you know she'll find a way to leave the USA and go live with family across the Pacific. We'll never see her again. And yes, they have some really bad asian drivers out there, but its mostly just the female ones...

This lady is going to face hard time Chowchilla !!! What the hell , she was thinking of going 80 miles on city streets . Hello do you read the traffic signs you go at least 40 or 35 miles . I hope SFPD brings her to court and I hope the judge give's her a dose of justice of what it is . My condolences go out to Kavin San's family !!!

A person, through a bail bondsmen (if need be), only has to acquire 10-15% of the original amount set. They will not get that money back however and are supposed to stay in the country and await trail.

i love it when racist, a-hole jerks make their racist, a-hole beliefs known on the internet and attach their full names to them (looking at you, STACY GRADNEY-REESE).

Going 80 in the city? Doesn't fit the old asian lady profile, if you were to profile. Something doesn't smell right. Not guilty until proven beyond doubt otherwise.

Has anyone who is so quick to label this woman a murderer thought about a possibility that she was not really suicidal and did not intentionally drive 80mph through the busy city intersections? The accelerator got stuck, perhaps? Until you know, don't judge.

I hope she receives the full penalty for her crimes, anyone that oblivious needs thier license taken away and needs to suffer beyond what she can buy herself out of.

she needs glasses.Asians drive fast and crazy but can't actually drive well enough to even be behind the wheel in the first place.

Not surprising it was a asian lady. I've got hit by an asian woman myself. they speed down the freeway and  the street with with no regard for anyone elses safety. If you already can't see and am not a good driver in the first place why would you just look straight basically,  and speed down the street and don't even look left or right, just hold the wheel tight and drive crazy and plunge forward.I bet you can't drive fast like that in your country.

The following article might be relevant:  supposedly MERCEDES-BENZ SUV's have a notorious problem with sudden acceleration  due to the placement of the cruise control lever mechanism.  Mercedes SUV sudden acceleration due to driver haphazardly pressing  Cruise Control lever upward,instead of turn signal, at the side of the steering wheel.

So sad, i think they need to slow down the lights on pine, it encourages people to speed in order to make it through.

Seriously? A kid lost his life, a family lost their son and could very well lose their mother and sister and all anyone could talk about is this woman's ethnicity...pathetic! My condolences to all the families affected by this tragedy.

I really want to hear the defense of why she was driving 80 mph on city streets. I can't wait.

Female, Asian, Senior: stereotypical bad driver trifecta. Add San Francisco resident for that added apathetic taste.

@pob1343  what does her being Asian have to do with anything?  She's just a stupid bitch that doesn't know how to drive.  I bet you if you look up the accident statistics nationwide and the majority of them are probably by white folks.    Thats like saying only white kids shoot up schools.
