Long Beach, CA (March 8, 2020) – An 86-year-old woman was killed in a pedestrian crash that took place in Long Beach on Friday, March 6th. The crash happened around 6:15 p.m. at the intersection of Magnolia Avenue and 32nd Street.
The Long Beach Police Department arrived on the scene shortly after the crash occurred. Police say that the woman was in a crosswalk when she was struck by a 2003 Honda Pilot that was traveling southbound on Magnolia. The unidentified woman was unconscious when rescue workers arrived. She was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced deceased.
The driver of the Pilot, a 46-year-old Long Beach resident, remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation. There are no further details on the crash at this time.
Our thoughts and condolences are with the victim’s family in this Long Beach crash.
Approximately 1,000 pedestrians are killed in crashes across California each year. Pedestrians in California are at risk of being killed or seriously injured when they are in a crash involving a motor vehicle. Pedestrians have nothing to protect them when they are struck by a car and the impact often takes place at high speeds with little time to react.
A California pedestrian accident can take place when a driver fails to yield to a pedestrian who is in a clearly-marked area such as a crosswalk. California pedestrian accidents also occur when drivers are impaired, distracted, or otherwise driving recklessly. A California pedestrian crash is almost always a major event, requiring extended medical care and treatment for victims.
