Los Angeles County, CA: Bystander Killed in Long Beach Collision
Los Angeles County, CA (March 12, 2018): Authorities are conducting an active and ongoing investigation into a two-vehicle collision in Long Beach, CA, that tragically resulted in the death of a pedestrian bystander early Thursday evening, March 8, 2018. The victim has been identified as 58-year-old Jack Ferguson.
Ferguson was reportedly sitting on a retaining wall near the intersection of Wardlow Road and Atlantic Avenue around 5:30 p.m. when he was hit by a vehicle that had just been involved in a collision. The initial collision reportedly happened when a 2017 Toyota traveling north on Atlantic Avenue attempted to make a left turn onto Wardlow Road and collided with a 2017 Honda Accord traveling south on Atlantic. The impact forced one of the cars into the wall occupied by Ferguson though it is unclear which vehicle struck him. Ferguson was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene and the drivers of both vehicles remained on-site until authorities arrived. Neither driver has reported sustaining any injuries in the collision.
