Elderly Chinese man becomes first pedestrian known to die in Vancouver after being hit by a cyclist

November 22nd, 2010 · 104 Comments

Kwok Chan’s family contacted me on the weekend, concerned and upset about an accident that took the life of their father last week, four days after he celebrated his 80th birthday.

Although they politely hesitated about blaming anyone too quickly, they were distraught that they didn’t know how exactly their father had lost his life and whether the cyclist involved had been travelling at a high rate of speed.

None of us know that at this point, as police typically don’t release details about crash investigations while they’re ongoing. But this is a case that will likely interest many in Vancouver, as the balance between cars, cyclists and pedestrians shifts.
