SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police say a driver is in custody after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a sport utility vehicle in the city’s popular Chinatown district.

Officer Albie Esparza, a San Francisco police spokesman, says the driver was arrested Saturday on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter after an elderly woman was hit by an SUV near the well-traveled Stockton Tunnel shortly before 10 a.m.

Police say the names of the driver and the victim have not been released. It is unknown if the driver has retained an attorney.

Police shut down the tunnel and surrounding streets for several hours following the accident. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.
