LONG BEACH, CA (September 29, 2020) – Sunday, a 24-year-old man died in a pedestrian crash on South Street and Cerritos Avenue in Long Beach.
According to reports, the pedestrian walk across South Street and Cerritos Avenue diagonally. However, stopped in the middle of the westbound South Street while waiting for eastbound traffic to clear.
