A 30-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and striking two 12-year-old boys in a crosswalk in San Francisco’s Marina District this morning, a police spokesman said.

San Francisco resident Kirsten Andereck was arrested on suspicion of DUI after she struck two boys at about 8:30 a.m. near the intersection of Buchanan and Bay streets, according to San Francisco police Officer Albie Esparza.

The boys suffered life-threatening injuries, but are expected to survive, Esparza said.

Andereck was driving a white Volkswagen Tiguan SUV and stayed at the scene of the collision.

The roadway was shut down during the investigation and reopened at about 11:30 a.m., police said.

Andereck attended St. Ignatius College Preparatory in 2001, according to yearbook records, and in 2004, when Andereck was 19 years old, she was a debutante at a Cotillion event hosted by the Cotillion Club of San Francisco.

Andereck also appears to have been a close family friend to the deceased comedian and Marin County resident Robin Williams, according to local media reports following his death by suicide last year.
