HUNTINGTON BEACH (March 12, 2019) – Over the weekend, two pedestrians died in separate and unrelated accidents in Huntington Beach.
Both pedestrians were attempting to cross Beach Boulevard outside of a crosswalk. And both died as a result of the severe trauma they suffered when hit by vehicles proceeding on green lights.
Just before 10:50 pm on Saturday a silver Nissan Versa struck a woman while she attempted crossing Beach Boulevard, just south of the intersection at Slater Avenue.
The woman, believed to be between 50 and 60 years old, was not in the crosswalk when she was struck. Police pronounced her dead at the scene as a result of significant head and body trauma.
The Nissan was going northbound through a green light at the intersection. The driver was not injured and remained on the scene. The vehicle sustained major front end, hood and windshield damage.
The second incident happened early Sunday morning, around 3:15 am. A 19-year-old man from Greeley, Colorado was hit and killed just north of the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Warner Ave. He was also outside the crosswalk when the accident happened.
A silver Kia Optima was proceeding through the intersection on a green light when it struck the man. The pedestrian also suffered severe trauma to his head and body and died at the scene. The second driver, a 26-year old Riverside man, stayed on the scene.
