Family members of a woman killed while crossing the street in San Francisco’s Chinatown earlier this month have launched a GoFundMe account to help cover funeral costs.

Ying Yuan Kuang, 86, was crossing in the crosswalk at Powell and Vallejo streets around 12:35 p.m. on Nov. 5 when she was struck by a large truck. She died at the scene, according to police.

Family members described her as a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who “carried in her a work ethic that many could only hope to emulate.”

While they cited her strength and hard work, family members said “many of her grandchildren remember how playful she was and how much joy she had playing card games and mahjong together.”

Kuang was one of two women killed in fatal collisions in the same day just blocks away from each other.
