Police say 50-year-old Sroeuy Khin was killed in an early morning crash on Friday. Khin was heading home after working a midnight shift to earn extra money for his family.
“It’s a tragic loss for their family it’s a tragic loss for the law enforcement community that has to deal with the death of another deputy sheriff,” said Alameda Sheriff Greg Ahern.
