Police make arrest in Visitacion Valley fatal hit-and-run 

San Francisco police have made an arrest Thursday in the fatal hit-and-run of an elderly woman in Visitacion Valley in March.

Nidra Stubbs, 31, of San Francisco, was taken into custody at her home about 11:45 a.m., police Officer Albie Esparza said in a statement Friday.

Stubbs was booked on felony hit-and-run charges and misdemeanor vehicle manslaughter charges in connection with the hit-and-run that killed 82-year-old San Francisco resident Oi Yeung as she crossed the street on March 20 about 11:15 a.m. at Bayshore Boulevard and Visitacion Avenue.

Yeung was crossing on a green light when she was struck by a white Dodge Durango as it turned left on Bayshore Boulevard. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Durango continued north on Bayshore Boulevard before turning left on Leland Avenue. Witnesses said it appeared the driver was going to head back to the scene but instead drove away south on Bayshore.

Yeung's death was the sixth pedestrian death of the year, police said at the time.

Police located the Durango about a week after the incident and interviewed the registered owner of the vehicle, which had not been reported as stolen.

Police could not say if Stubbs was the registered owner of the Dodge Durango but they did say that talking to the owner helped investigators lead to her arrest, Esparza said.

Stubbs is currently not in custody after posting $80,000 bail and will return to court April 16, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.
