Long Beach, CA (October 28, 2019) – A California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer struck and killed a pedestrian in Bixby Knolls early on Sunday morning, October 27th. The collision was reported along Del Amo Boulevard at approximately 4:40 a.m.
According to a spokeswoman for the Long Beach Police Department, the officer was riding a motorcycle westbound, in the vicinity of Cherry Avenue, when he struck a pedestrian. Emergency crews arrived at the scene where the pedestrian was pronounced deceased and the officer was taken to a local hospital.
There has been no information released concerning the seriousness of the officer’s injuries. Police are currently conducting a thorough investigation into this accident.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
The state of California has the 15th highest rate of deadly pedestrian collisions between January and June of 2017, according to recent reports. The research found that approximately 352 people died in auto-pedestrian accidents during that span. Victims are entirely defenseless at the time of impact with a vehicle, which leaves them at a high risk of suffering catastrophic or fatal injuries after any California pedestrian accident.
When a family member is suddenly struck and killed by a vehicle, loved are often left with not only suffering but the worry of massively high expenses, as well. Although it may be extremely difficult, it is essential for family members to know that they may have rights following such an accident.
