A 59-year-old man who crossed a street in Huntington Beach outside a crosswalk was struck by a vehicle and later died at a hospital, authorities said Saturday morning.
Officers responded to a traffic crash in the area of Beach Boulevard and Blaylock Drive at 10:50 p.m. Friday and located the victim on the sidewalk, according to Sgt. Eric Warken of the Huntington Beach Police Department.
“The pedestrian sustained major trauma and was transported to the UCI Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries,” Warken said.
The man was struck by a 1999 black and purple Saturn driven by a 52-year-old Huntington Beach woman as he crossed Beach Boulevard outside a crosswalk and walked into the path of the northbound vehicle, Warken said.
The victim was from Midway City, Warken said.
Anyone who witnessed this crash was asked to call Huntington Beach police Officer J. Gasteiger at 714-960-8811 or Accident Investigator A. Turner at 714-536-5670.
