Donavan Gray and Henry Chen Unharmed in Fatal Pedestrian Collision on 91 Freeway Near 605 Freeway
BELLFLOWER, CA (December 11, 2018)– A man was fatally struck by multiple cars on the 91 Freeway near the 605 Freeway Monday night.
Around 9:30 p.m., California Highway Patrol officers began responding to reports of a pedestrian walking on the right shoulder and attempting to cross the eastbound lanes of the 91 Freeway. Several minutes later, a 2012 Infiniti struck the pedestrian in the No. 1 lane.
The pedestrian was thrown into the carpool lane and struck by at least two more cars, one of which fled the scene. The victim suffered blunt-force trauma in the wreck and died shortly after.
Donavan Gray, 44, of Los Angeles and Henry Chen, 32, of Monrovia, escaped the crash unharmed and remained at the scene due to investigations. Alcohol and drugs are not considered to be factors on their parts, but it is unknown whether the pedestrian was under the influence.
A description of the third vehicle involved was not available, but authorities are urging the public to call Officer McLaughlin at the CHP’s Santa Fe Springs area office at 562-868-0503 if they have any more information.
Our sincere thoughts and sympathies go out to the bereaved family and friends of the victim.
