A pedestrian was killed by a car in Long Beach, and police Thursday sought public help to identify her.
The woman was injured about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday at Artesia Boulevard and Orange Avenue, and died at a hospital, according to the Long Beach Police Department.
“The preliminary investigation revealed the pedestrian, who has not been identified, was crossing Artesia Boulevard northbound near a crosswalk on the west side of the intersection,” police said in a statement.
“However, the pedestrian was crossing against a red signal and upraised red hand indicating, `Don’t Walk,'” police said.
According to police, she was hit by a 1997 BMW 528i that was westbound on Artesia and being driven by a 29-year-old Long Beach man who remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities. His name was not released.
“Alcohol, drugs and distracted driving are not believed to be a factor in the collision for the driver,” police said. “The driver had a valid license.”
Anyone with information on the woman’s identity, or who may have witnessed the crash, was urged to call detectives at 562-570-7355, or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
