Authorities Friday identified a woman who was struck and killed by an SUV as she stood on a Beverly Hills street corner with her husband, who was struck by the same vehicle and critically injured.
It happened just after 5 p.m. April 9 at Wilshire Boulevard and Bedford Drive, where two SUVs had collided and one of them careened into the victims, Beverly Hills Police Lt. Renato Moreno said.
Carole Stephanie Moussa-Dib, 68, of Los Angeles died at a hospital, said coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter. Her husband, whose name was not released, was hospitalized in critical condition.
“Officers determined that two vehicles collided in the intersection, and one vehicle deflected into the southeast corner of the intersection, where it struck a male and female pedestrian,” Moreno said in a statement.
A third vehicle on Bedford Drive just south of the intersection was also struck by one of the SUVs, he said. No other injuries were reported.
All three motorists cooperated and provided statements to investigators, according to Moreno. The investigation was continuing.
