On Nov. 21, 2022 at approximately 9:32 p.m., officers were flagged down in the area of Pacific Coast Highway and Orange Avenue regarding a traffic collision, which resulted in the death of an adult male pedestrian.
When officers arrived on scene, they located an adult male pedestrian with who had been struck by a vehicle, laying in the street. Officers rendered aid to the pedestrian until Long Beach Fire Department personnel arrived and determined the pedestrian deceased at the scene.
The preliminary investigation revealed a 2017 Chevy Silverado driven by a 35-year-old resident of Long Beach, was traveling westbound on Pacific Coast Highway towards Orange Avenue when he struck a pedestrian who was crossing Pacific Coast Highway against a red light. It is unclear at this time if the pedestrian was in the crosswalk when the collision occurred. The driver of the truck remained on scene and cooperated with the investigation.
Speed, distracted driving, nor impairment are not believed to be a factor in this collision.
The pedestrian is only being identified as an adult male, pending next of kin notification by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.
