Mercedes-driving teen who struck cop had no license, prosecutors claim

An 18-year-old woman had no driver’s license when she struck a police officer in the Tenderloin earlier this week, prosecutors alleged Thursday.

Marisa Androvich, of San Francisco, has been charged with felony hit-and-run and two counts of misdemeanor driving without a license after allegedly striking the plainclothes officer in a crosswalk at Larkin and Eddy Streets on Tuesday.

Androvich was allegedly behind the wheel of a blue Mercedes Benz that hit the officer at around 3 p.m. before fleeing the scene. Officers arrested Androvich minutes later at 26th Avenue and California Street in the Richmond District, while the injured officer was taken to the hospital and discharged that evening.

Androvich is being held at County Jail on $53,100 bail. She has also been charged with an infraction for failing to yield to a pedestrian and is expected to be arraigned Friday afternoon, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
