Mourning the Loss of Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan Who Was Killed by Motorist
On Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2021, a longtime Alameda County Supervisor was killed by a motorist while she and her dog were crossing the street near the intersection of Shoreline Drive and Grand Street in Alameda, California. Alameda’s Safer Streets program, Vision Zero Action Plan, identified the intersection where the incident occurred as one of Alameda County’s high-injury corridors.
Supervisor Chan’s death comes in the wake of two previous fatal traffic collisions in Alameda in 2021. This past June, former KTVU news director Fred Zehnder was out on a walk when a motorist fatally struck him. These recent incidents have put Alameda’s dangerous traffic safety in the spotlight.
We extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to Supervisor Chan's families and loved ones during this difficult time
