A 90-year-old woman who fatally struck 53-year-old Susan Shepherd in a San Francisco crosswalk Friday night will not be charged in the crash, but was ordered to have her driver's license retested, a San Francisco Police Department spokesman said today.
San Francisco police Officer Jason Hui said the woman, whose identity has not been released by police, was not arrested and will not be charged.
“She has been warned not to drive pending a Department of Motor Vehicles retest of her license,” Hui said.
According to Hui, the woman was driving her 2002 Volkswagon Jetta legally and made a legal left turn at the intersection of Fillmore and Pine streets at about 8:40 p.m. Friday, when she struck Shepherd in a crosswalk. Shepherd, who was also crossing legally, was pinned underneath the
Jetta, according to Hui. Shepard, of Larkspur, was taken to an area hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Another woman in the crosswalk was pulled back by an acquaintance and was uninjured, Hui said. Neither the driver nor her passenger were injured, he added.
The crash is still under investigation.
