Mugshot of deadly crash suspect Jennie Zhu released 

The woman who allegedly caused last week's deadly high-speed crash that killed a 16-year-old boy on his way to school has been identified as Jennie Zhu, 58.

Zhu was booked Saturday on a vehicular manslaughter charge and two traffic infractions after witnesses told police they saw her driving up to 80 mph before the horrific collision at Gough and Pine streets. She reportedly wasn't intoxicated at the time of the crash. Police have not said why she was speeding.

Zhu, who is out of custody after posting the $300,200 bail, was allegedly driving recklessly on Pine Street in a Mercedes SUV when she rear-ended a minivan at Gough Street just before 7 a.m., police said.

The minivan was occupied by Kevin San, a 16-year-old Lincoln High School student, his mother and his teenage sister.

San was pronounced dead at the scene, while his mother and sister were seriously wounded. Zhu suffered minor injuries.

The impact caused the minivan to collide with a catering truck, injuring three more people. Their injuries were not life threatening, police said.

A memorial was set up at San's school and grief counselors have been made available to students, school officials said.
