A 42-year-old motorist killed in a single-vehicle crash was identified Tuesday by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office as a Long Beach resident.
The crash occurred at about 10 p.m. Monday on Anaheim Street near Santa Fe Avenue, the Long Beach Police Department reported.
Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene, police said.
According to police, the man was driving a 1967 AMC Rambler west on Anaheim Street when the car “veered off the roadway and struck a power pole.”
“It is unknown at this time why the driver lost control of the vehicle,” police said in a statement.
“However, speed and impaired driving are not believed to be factors in this collision. No other vehicles are believed to be involved at this time, and no one else was inside the vehicle at the time of the collision,” police said.
Anyone with information on the crash was urged to call police traffic investigators at 562-570-7355. Anonymous tips may be submitted through Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS or via the website LACrimeStoppers.org.
