ON August 16, 2017

Victim later died at hospital despite medical treatment

According to recent articles, there was a man that died after being hit by a car at the intersection of Cherry Avenue and East 65th Street in Long Beach last Tuesday morning.

As mentioned in various sources, the accident occurred just before 12:00 a.m. when the male pedestrian attempted to cross Cherry Avenue north of 65th.

An unlicensed, male driver headed northbound in a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier struck the man crossing the street.

Responding authorities arrived at the scene afterwards and located the victim on the roadway, with several witnesses around him, rendering CPR.

Furthermore, paramedics transported the severely injured victim to a local hospital, where he later died.

Neither the name of the injured pedestrian nor the driver was released.

In the current police investigation, it was detailed that the pedestrian was not using a crosswalk at the time of the collision.  Additionally, it was said that the 39-year-old unlicensed driver was a resident of Lakewood, and that he did not seem to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.  Further details will be released once the investigation has concluded.
