On Saturday, July 16, at approximately 1:50am, officers from the Long Beach Police Department responded to an injury-hit-and-run traffic collision in the 3600 block of Broadway that left a female pedestrian in critical condition.
When officers arrived on the scene they found that the victim, a 24-year-old female resident of Long Beach, had been struck by a vehicle that was traveling westbound on Broadway when it hit her.
After the collision, the vehicle fled the scene, continuing westbound on Broadway a short distance before it was last seen turning northbound on Loma Avenue. The victim was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. Her condition has improved since, but the suspect still remains at large.
Since the evening of the accident, investigators have obtained an image of the suspect vehicle from a surveillance camera in the area. The image shows the suspect vehicle, possibly a silver four-door Lexus or Toyota, leaving the scene.
Investigators have released the photo of the suspect vehicle and are asking for the public’s help in locating it and its owner, as well as asking anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or who may have any information related to it, to come forward. Tipsters may leave their contact information, or remain anonymous if they prefer.
Those with information about this incident are asked to call Long Beach Police Accident Investigations Detective Richard Birdsall at (562) 570-7355. Anonymous tips can also be submitted via text or web by visiting longbeach.gov/police.
