SAN FRANCISCO, CA – District Attorney George Gascón announced today that Kieran Drew Brewer, age 28 of San Francisco will be charged with three felonies for driving under the influence and killing a 17-year old pedestrian on Sloat Boulevard on March 3.

“In a matter of seconds, a young girl’s life was taken on her 17th birthday because of the irresponsible behavior of the defendant,” said District Attorney George Gascón. “When you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, you are responsible not only for yourself but to the cars and pedestrians around you. We hope this case serves as a reminder of the tragic consequences when you drink and drive.”

According to court documents, on March 3, the defendant was driving westbound on Sloat Bouvelard approaching Forest View Drive. The victim was crossing Sloat Boulevard going northbound when the front of the defendant’s vehicle struck the victim. The defendant was under the influence and was driving at an unsafe speed.

Brewer will be charged with felony gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, driving under the influence causing injury and driving with a .08 or higher causing injury. He faces up to 10 years in State Prison. His bail was set at $300,000. He is scheduled to be arraigned on March 8, at 9am in Dept 11. Assistant District Attorney Nicole Joseph-Goteiner is arraigning the case.
