Hearing-Impaired Woman Hit By Car Near Junipero and PCH

A hearing-impaired woman was left with unspecified injuries this morning after being hit by a car, authorities said.

The woman was crossing the street in the area of Junipero and Pacific Coast Highway at about 7:34AM when she was hit by a car, said Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD) spokesman Jake Heflin.

She was transported by LBFD paramedics to St. Mary Medical Center with unknown injuries, he said.

A friend on scene explained to authorities that the woman, who was walking with a cane, was hard of hearing.

The vehicle and driver stayed at the scene until police arrived, said Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman Megan Zabel, and a traffic collision report will be filed.

No further information was immediately available, including details on the events leading up to the accident, or if the woman was walking in a marked crosswalk.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
