SAN FRANCISCO -- A woman who San Francisco police say was driving at speeds of up to 80 mph on city streets before she rear-ended a minivan, killing a 16-year-old boy, has been arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter.

Police announced the woman's arrest on Sunday. Her name was not released while prosecutors review the case.

Police say the woman's Mercedes rear-ended the minivan carrying 16-year-old Kevin San around 7 a.m. Friday. The impact caused both vehicles to roll over.

San's mother and sister were seriously injured. The Mercedes driver suffered minor injuries.

Three people inside a catering van that was also struck in the crash were also injured.
