MONTEREY PARK, CA (May 2, 2018) – A pedestrian collision on Garvey Avenue claimed the life of a 75-year-old woman, late Wednesday night.
According to the Monterey Park Police, they received reports about a pedestrian collision at about 9:58 PM in the 900 block of East Garvey Avenue. The woman was crossing on Garvey, just west of Elizabeth Avenue, when an eastbound vehicle struck her. The 69-year-old male driver stopped at the scene and cooperated with authorities, despite a language barrier.
