Police said a 52-year-old Huntington Beach woman was driving a black-and-purple 1999 Saturn north on Beach Boulevard when the pedestrian crossed the road in front of her. It appeared the pedestrian wasn’t in a crosswalk when the vehicle hit him, according to authorities.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Officer Jeffrey Gasteiger at (714) 960-8811 or Traffic Investigator Adam Turner at (714) 536-5670.
