Long Beach, CA – Update: Woman Dies From Injuries After Being Hit By Car in Fight on Anaheim St

Long Beach, CA (December 26, 2019) – Police have recently reported on the woman who was tragically struck by a motor vehicle following a brief fight on Anaheim Street in downtown Long Beach. The victim, who has now been identified as 25-year-old Elizabeth Perez Espino, of Long Beach, has died more than a week after the incident occurred on December 15th.

Police were called to the scene of the incident after Espino was struck by a vehicle at approximately 3:30 a.m., in the vicinity of Magnolia Avenue. Emergency crews transported the victim to a local hospital where she remained in critical condition for eight days before being pronounced deceased on Tuesday, December 23rd.

Espino was struck by a car driven by Harrison Bowser, 30, of Los Angeles, and she had just been involved in an altercation outside the vehicle with Samantha Smith, 26, of Long Beach. Smith jumped in the vehicle and she and Bowser fled the scene. They were soon arrested and face serious charges.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Elizabeth Perez Espino at this time.
