Leonard Smith Fatal Hit-And-Run Crash on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in Long Beach

 
Long Beach, CA(November 5, 2020) – A man who was struck in a hit-and-run crash in August, identified as Leonard Smith, a 74-year old from Long Beach, died from his injuries weeks later.
 
The crash happened at about 3:10 p.m. on August 23 in the parking lot along the 1990 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.
 
Long Beach Police reports say Smith had been struck by a vehicle that left the scene but the driver returned shortly after the police arrived.
 
Smith then transported to a hospital with injuries to his lower torso that did not appear to be life-threatening at the time.
 
He remained hospitalized, but on September 6, police were notified that Smith had died. A month later, coroner’s officials released a statement that he died of blunt force trauma related to the injuries he suffered from the incident.
 
Police described the driver as a 30-year-old man from Lancaster driving a 2000 Cadillac SUV. Moreover, authorities made no arrest after the crash.
 
Police do not believe drugs, alcohol, nor distracted driving considered as factors in the crash.
 
Further investigation to determine if a crime occurred is still underway.


We at Sweet Lawyers extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and loved ones of Leonard Smith. May the bereaved find comfort and strength in this trying time.

“Insurance companies will try to save money, even if it means not fully compensating a family for the wrongful death of a loved one. When a family retains an attorney immediately, it gives the family time to grieve their loss, and their attorney can start focusing on holding the negligent party accountable,” says Tyler Toomey, a practicing attorney at Sweet Lawyers.

  • Gaining compensation for the funeral expenses accrued over a deceased victim’s send-off.
