Vehicle strikes house in traffic collision in Central Long Beach, police say

A car collided with a residence Saturday night in Central Long Beach, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

At about 9:56 p.m. on Saturday, officers responding to reports of an injury traffic collision at the 1300 block of Atlantic Avenue found a vehicle had collided into a residence, according to LBPD spokesperson Brandon Fahey.

There were no injuries, though one individual was displaced by the crash and is being assisted by the Red Cross, said Long Beach Fire Department spokesperson Brian Fisk.

The LBPD’s investigation into the collision is ongoing, said Fahey.

A tow truck removed the car from the residence, according to Fahey. The LBFD’s urban search and rescue team helped shore up the house until engineers from the city could assess its damage, according to Fisk.

On Sunday morning, assorted debris from both the house and the car covered the property’s front lawn.

A “RED UNSAFE” notice from the city’s Development Services department was taped to the boards covering what had once been the house’s front door.
