Authorities are investigating the death of a woman who was struck three times by two vehicles in Long Beach early Sunday morning when she crossed an unmarked crosswalk, according to the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD).
Police responded to the incident at 12:46AM on Sunday, June 26, near Anaheim Street and Ohio Avenue, an LBPD release stated.
“The preliminary investigation revealed a white or beige Ford Expedition, traveling west on Anaheim Street, collided with a female pedestrian who was crossing Anaheim Street, south from the northeast curb of Ohio Avenue, in an unmarked crosswalk,” stated the release. “After the collision, the vehicle reversed and made a right turn onto northbound Ohio Avenue, colliding with the pedestrian a second time before leaving the scene.”
Later, the woman was struck by a 2006 Cadillac driven by a 49-year-old Compon man who remained at the scene, authorities said.
The pedestrian was determined dead at the scene by Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD) personnel who responded to the incident.
