Frank Mabry, 31, is accused of driving a black Audi A4 at high speeds into a gray Mazda, killing 57-year-old Leonid Stoliarov of Pacifica, police Lt. Lyn Tomioka said.

Witnesses said they saw Mabry driving east on Geary Boulevard near Arguello Boulevard at about 2:15 a.m. He had been running red lights, and he crashed into the Mazda after crossing Arguello, according to police.

Stoliarov was pronounced dead at the scene. Mabry was taken to a local hospital, where he is being treated for injuries sustained in the crash before being transferred to county jail, Tomioka said.

Traffic along Geary Boulevard was detoured for nearly five hours, with several buses re-routed, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency spokesman Paul Rose said.

Mabry faces charges of felony vehicular manslaughter, driving without a license, and a misdemeanor charge of speeding.

He also faces two charges of running a red light, Tomioka said.

Police believe it’s unlikely alcohol or drugs played a factor in the crash.
