Woman, possibly homeless, killed by hit-and-run driver in West Long Beach, police say – Press Telegram

A woman was killed by a driver who was hit while crossing the Pacific Coast Highway in West Long Beach on Wednesday night, April 20, and police were looking for the driver, authorities said.

The woman, believed to be in her 30s and 40s, was crossing PCH on Harbor Avenue at a marked pedestrian crossing when she was hit by a Toyota Avalon sedan traveling west in PCH about 11:35 p.m., police said.

The Avalon continued, and officers found the suspect vehicle shortly after, parked and unoccupied on Santa Fe Avenue.

The car had significant damage to the windshield and a large dent in the hood. Officers searched a nearby bar, but it was unclear if the driver had rushed in.

The victim, whose identity had not been released by officials while still waiting for his relatives to be notified, was possibly homeless, police said.

It was not immediately known whether the car was speeding, or traveling at a red or green light, when the accident occurred. The intersection has traffic lights and four signposted pedestrian crossings.
