Long Beach, CA (November 18, 2019) – On Sunday evening, November 17th, a woman was struck and killed by a motor vehicle on Lakewood Boulevard. The auto-pedestrian accident was reported a little before 9:00 p.m., in the vicinity of Cedar Street.
Authorities with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department stated that an unidentified woman who was likely attempting to cross the roadway was struck by an unspecified vehicle. Emergency crews arrived at the scene and attempted to assist the victim who eventually succumbed to her injuries.
Police are actively investigating the events that led to this incident but no further details, including the identity of the victim, have been released.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the victim at this time.
Within the first six months of 2017, the state of California held the 15th highest rate of fatal pedestrian accidents, according to research. Reports stated that an estimated 352 people were killed in auto-pedestrian collisions during that time. Victims are often entirely vulnerable at the time of impact, leaving them at serious risk of sustaining deadly injuries during a California pedestrian accident.
After a loved one is hit by a vehicle, family members are sadly left with not only pain and suffering but the worry of covering extremely high costs, as well. During such a time, it is essential for the bereaved family to know that they may have substantial rights that are protected by law.
