LONG BEACH (March 11, 2019) – Early Sunday morning, Long Beach Police responded to an accident that caused the death of an adult male. Police suspect the man was responsible for a hit-and-run minutes earlier.
When they arrived on the scene, Police found a red 2004 Toyota Camry had crashed into a traffic control pole at the southeast corner of 2nd St. and Marina Drive.
The vehicle was completely consumed in flames. Witnesses pulled the driver clear of the vehicle.
The male driver was lying unconscious near the center median of Marina Drive. Officers began CPR and Long Beach Fire personnel continued life-saving measures when they arrived.
The man was then transported to an area hospital but died a short time later as a result of the critical nature of his injuries.
Police believe the Toyota was involved in a hit and run just minutes before. The initial investigation shows the driver was fleeing the scene of that accident at a high rate of speed when he lost control and collided with the traffic pole. The driver did not have identification on him at the time of the crash.
