Long Beach, CA – Fatal Pedestrian Hit & Run on Willow St

Long Beach, CA (September 16, 2019) – A driver fled from the scene of an accident that resulted in the death of a 90-year-old man on Sunday, September 15th at 9:30 p.m.

The elderly man was crossing Willow Street via an unmarked crosswalk at La Vere Drive when he was struck by a pick-up truck. The truck continued driving–neglecting to stop and render aid or to remain at the scene. 

When officers from the Long Beach Police Department arrived, the victim was lying in the middle of the street. Emergency technicians transported the victim to a nearby hospital, although he ultimately succumbed to his injuries.

Police have issued a statement saying that the hit-and-run driver was in a white Toyota Tacoma and was going west on Willow Street.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
