William Brand remains in critical condition

Longtime Oakland Tribune reporter William Brand is still in critical but stable condition at San Francisco General Hospital after being hit by a San Francisco Municipal Railway train nine days ago, Tribune reporter Cecily Burt tells Bay City News.

Brand, 70, who retired from full-time work late last year but still writes a beer column for the newspaper, was struck by a Muni N-Judah train at Second and King streets in San Francisco about 9:10 p.m. on Feb. 8.

Brand was returning from a food and beer pairing event at the 21st Amendment Brewery on Second Street when he was struck by the Muni train, colleagues at the Tribune tell BCN. The accident is under investigation. (Photo credit: Tribune, Nick Lammers)
