A driver who allegedly ran a red light in Long Beach and whose Nissan Maxima was struck by Chevrolet Cruze died at a hospital three days after the collision, authorities said Wednesday.
A 28-year-old Gardena man was driving a 2016 Nissan Maxima southbound on Pacific Avenue at Sixth Street, about 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 10, when he allegedly ran a red light at the intersection and whose vehicle was struck by a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze traveling eastbound on Sixth Street, according to the Long Beach Police Department.
The Chevrolet’s driver remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.
The Nissan’s driver, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, was taken to a hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, police said. He died at the hospital on Oct. 13.
The coroner’s office will determine the cause of death and release his name once next of kin is notified.
