A 30-year-old pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Long Beach, authorities said Friday.
Erica Cardenas was homeless, said coroner’s Lt. David Smith.
A Long Beach police officer was flagged down by someone at 9:29 p.m. Thursday to report that Cardenas was struck in the 1900 block of Pacific Avenue by a speeding, southbound vehicle, the Long Beach Police Department reported.
The vehicle fled the location and Cardenas was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.
Police did not release a description of the suspect vehicle and had no other information.
