Aiden’s parents, Lily and Greg Gossage, have started a petition for more traffic safety measures along the stretch of Los Coyotes and for increased enforcement of speeding and impaired driving.
Greg Gossage recalls thinking, “Oh, God, I hope Aiden’s been arrested,” the lesser of two alarming reasons police would be at the door in the middle of the night.
Speed was likely a factor in the 11 a.m. collision, the Long Beach Police Department said in a statement.
A person died after being struck by a car early Monday near Signal Hill, according to authorities.
The crash occurred a little after 7:35 a.m., the California HighwayPatrol reported.
The two-car collision happened just before 8 a.m. Saturday, according to police, who were still investigating what caused the crash.
Alcohol is being investigated as a factor in the collision, the CHP said.
The woman who died last week while lying on an unmarked crosswalk at Pacific Coast Highway and Loma Avenue at the border of Long Beach and Signal Hill has been identified as Ann Ohearn, 56, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.
A truck driver was fatally struck by his own vehicle last week at the Port of Long Beach when he attempted to unlatch a trailer from his tractor, which was not adequately parked, authorities said. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters held a press conference yesterday demanding more information from port. Details regarding the fatality were released by the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) today.
