Pedestrian succumbs after being hit by car on Atlantic and 4th

On Feb. 21, at approximately 11am, Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) officers responded to a traffic collision involving a pedestrian and a vehicle in the area of Atlantic Avenue and 4th Street that resulted in the death of the pedestrian, according to an LBPD press release.
The preliminary investigation indicates that the driver, a 38-year-old Long Beach woman, was travelling northbound on Atlantic Avenue, midway between 4th and 5th streets, when she struck a male subject in the roadway. The subject was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.
Late Tuesday night, Long Beach Police were notified by the hospital that the victim had been pronounced deceased. At this time, the subject is only being identified as a 48-year-old Long Beach resident until next of kin can be notified.
At this point, it appears that the subject ran into northbound lanes of traffic from the east sidewalk, but the investigation remains ongoing.
Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact Long Beach Police Accident Investigations Detective Brian Watt at (562) 570-7355.
