On Thursday, November 2, 2017, at approx. 6:40 p.m., officers were dispatched to the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Lime Avenue regarding a vehicle versus pedestrian injury traffic collision.
Upon arrival officers determined that two vehicles had collided with a female pedestrian who had sustained major body trauma. Long Beach Fire Deparment responded and transported the victim to a local area hospital where she was later pronounced deceased.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the unidentified female pedestrian, approx. 40-50 years old, was traveling on a skateboard southbound across Pacific Coast Highway (P.C.H.) at Lime Avenue. The pedestrian was outside of the unmarked crosswalk when a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder, driven by a 55-year-old male resident of Long Beach, collided with the pedestrian in the #2 eastbound lane of P.C.H., east of Lime Avenue.
The force of the impact caused the pedestrian to land in the #1 eastbound lane of P.C.H. where she was run over by a 2005 Toyota Sienna, driven by a 62-year-old female resident of Long Beach.
Both vehicles remained at the scene and the drivers cooperated in the investigation. They were later released from the scene, pending further investigation.
Anyone who may have witnessed this incident is asked to call Detective Sirilo Garcia of the Long Beach Police Department’s Collision Investigation Detail at (562) 570-7355.
