After police pursuit, motorcyclist dies in collision with vehicle

On Friday, Feb. 17, at approximately 7:40am, a traffic collision between a motorcycle and a vehicle occurred on Pacific Coast Highway just west of Channel Drive, resulting in the death of a male adult motorcyclist, according to a press release issued by the Long Beach Police Department Wednesday.
The driver of the motorcycle was travelling westbound on Pacific Coast Highway in the bike lane and at a high rate of speed, when he broadsided a gold four-door Acura as it made a left turn into the shopping center from eastbound Pacific Coast Highway, according to the release.
The motorcyclist, identified as 24-year-old Joshua Morrison-Conrad of Long Beach, was transported to a local hospital with major injuries. He was pronounced deceased at the hospital later the same day. The driver of the Acura, a 45-year-old woman from Signal Hill, and an 8-year-old passenger in her vehicle, were not injured.
Long Beach Police learned that at some point prior to the collision, the motorcyclist had been involved in a pursuit with Seal Beach Police Department officers.
Questions regarding the pursuit should be directed to the Seal Beach Police Sergeant Steve Bowles at (562) 799-4100 ext. 1160. Anyone who may have witnessed the collision who has not yet spoken with police should contact Long Beach Police Accident Investigations Detective Brian Watt at (562) 570-7355.
