Distraught family frustrated with police investigation

A devastating car accident happened to the Sun family on August 24. The mother of a three-year-old son, Elaine Tan, tells us she has not given up hope on her husband who is still in a coma and expresses her frustration with the police investigation.

Elaine Tan says she and her family have not heard anything from the investigators. In the mean time, she is worried about her three-year-old son Jordan who was traumatized by the accident and will be transferred to UCSF to receive psychological counseling. Since the accident, Jordan stopped attending school.

San Francisco police told KTSF that there is no update on the case. The District Attorney Office’s spokesperson also said they have no records regarding any defendant from the incident.

Meanwhile, the local Chinese community is donating thousands of dollars to help. KTSF Cares is accepting donations on behalf of the family and has received over $5,800 dollars as of Wednesday. Checks can be made payable to Elaine Y. Tan and mailed to: KTSF Cares, 100 Valley Drive, Brisbane, CA 94005.

Derrick Wong, the Principal of Cornerstone Academy, where Jordan previously attended pre-K told us the high school student council is dedicating a week of after school sales to the Sun Family fund that has been set up among teachers of the school.

The Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association is also organizing a fundraiser to help the family. Checks can be made payable to: CCBA, in care of 譚艷蘭(Elaine Tan)
