Long Beach police on Friday released a photo of a truck whose driver is wanted in connection with a hit-and-run crash that left a 56-year-old bicyclist dead month.
The coroner’s office has determined that the death of a 74-year-old man two weeks after he was struck by an SUV in Long Beach in August “was related to the injuries he sustained from the collision,” police said today.
A man died several days after he was involved in a crash in Downtown Long Beach, but officials are still trying to determine exactly what caused his death, police said today.
Two men were killed in separate traffic collisions Friday night and early Saturday morning, Long Beach police said.
The California Highway Patrol said witnesses reported to them that a Cadillac Escalade ran a red light and crashed into a Honda Accord.
In the coming weeks, Long Beach police will place an extra emphasis on spotting problems like cellphone use and speeding during the evening hours, when all of the recent wrecks occurred.
Bystanders started CPR on the truck’s driver, and when medics arrived, they rushed him to a hospital where he died, police said.
A vehicle speeding at least 80 miles per hour eastbound on Del Amo Boulevard ran a red light, according to sources at the scene.
A 32-year-old woman was hit by a truck and killed after she stepped into the street near Cal State Long Beach.
“Speed, cell phone distraction and/or DUI are not considered factors in this collision,” police said.
