Driver Sought in Lengthy Seaside Hit-and-Run Crash – NBC Los Angeles

One of the three vehicles that fatally struck a man in Long Beach fled the scene, authorities said Sunday.

The victim was struck at about 6:45 pm Saturday at Pacific Avenue and 27th Street, the Long Beach Police Department reported. Officers arriving at the scene located a Honda Odyssey that was driven by a 78-year-old man.

“The Long Beach Fire Department responded to the scene, lifted and stabilized the vehicle, and determined the pedestrian trapped underneath the vehicle was deceased,” police said.

Officers also located a Hyundai Elentra driven by a 27-year-old man that also struck the victim.

An investigation revealed that a vehicle going northbound on Pacific Avenue first struck the person who was crossing Pacific Avenue in the north crosswalk. That driver fielded the scene.

A detailed description of the vehicle was not immediately available.

The LBPD’s Collision Investigation Detail urged anyone with information about the crash to call them at 562-570-7355 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
