HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA (January 25, 2021) – Sunday night, Jacob Conroy, 29, died in a hit-and-run accident on Goldenwest Street.
The initial collision happened around 7:15 p.m., said Huntington Beach police Lt. Brian Smith.
Moreover, it occurred southbound on Goldenwest Street, north of Oxford Drive.
After being hit by a hit-and-run vehicle, another car struck the pedestrian. The second driver stopped, and stayed at the scene.
“Based upon the preliminary investigation, it appears the victim was crossing Goldenwest Street outside of a marked crosswalk when he was struck by a black SUV,” Smith revealed.
“The vehicle failed to stop at the scene and was last seen traveling westbound on Oxford Drive from Goldenwest Street, with significant damage to its front end and windshield.”
A concerned passersby stopped to help the injured pedestrian. Unfortunately, the paramedics declared him dead at the scene.
Later on, the Orange County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 29-year-old Conroy.
