Elderly Female Pedestrian Fatally Struck by Vehicle on Magnolia Avenue

 
LONG BEACH, CA (June 18, 2018) – An elderly woman was killed Monday evening following a pedestrian collision on West Wardlow Road. Her identity was not immediately disclosed.
 
The Long Beach Police Department arrived at the scene shortly before 8:50 PM. They found a woman in her 70s lying in the westbound lanes of Wardlow Road west of Magnolia Avenue suffering major trauma.
 
Officers were still able to rush the victim to a nearby hospital where she was listed in critical condition. Unfortunately, she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead hours later.
 
A preliminary investigation revealed that a 2001 Toyota Camry, driven by an unidentified 19-year-old Compton resident, was heading west on Wardlow Road and was about to enter the intersection on a green light. The victim was crossing the west crosswalk against a red light when she was struck by the Camry. Initially, the driver fled the scene but later returned to fully cooperate with investigators.
 
No additional information is available at this time. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact investigators by calling Detective Sirilo Garcia of the Long Beach Police Department’s Collision Investigation Detail, at (562) 570-7355.
