A motorist who got out of his SUV following a crash on the 91 Freeway in Long Beach was struck by at least one other vehicle and died at a hospital, authorities said today.
The 21-year-old’s name was withheld pending notification of his family.
The Los Angeles resident was driving a 1998 Honda CR-V that collided with another vehicle, both of which stopped, about 10:45 p.m. Tuesday on the westbound 91, near Cherry Avenue, said California Highway Patrol Officer Marcos Iniguez of the Santa Fe Springs Area office.
The man got out of the Honda, and a short time later was hit by at least one other vehicle, Iniguez said.
As many as six vehicles apparently were involved in some manner in the initial crash and in other collisions related to the crash, and all motorists remained at the scene, Iniguez said.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the CHP Santa Fe Springs Area office at 562-868-0503.
Editor’s note: This story was updated Wednesday afternoon with more information from the CHP, including details about the man’s death.
