A 33-year- old woman killed in a suspected drunk driving accident in Woodlawn Sunday has been identified, authorities said.

Natasha Mar, of Brooklyn, was waiting at an MTA bus stop at Jerome and Bainbridge Avenues when  Francisco Rosario,  a suspected drunk driver, jumped the curb while traveling about 70 miles per hour in his Nissan minivan, according to the NYPD.

Mar was struck by the minivan and died of her injuries. A man waiting with her at the bus stop was also hurt, but survived, police said.

Rosario, who could not immediately be reached for comment, faces multiple charges including driving while intoxicated and assault.
