Pedestrian struck and killed in traffic collision Tuesday night in Huntington Beach
A female pedestrian was struck and killed in a traffic collision Tuesday night in Huntington Beach, authorities said.
Huntington Beach police responded to Beach Boulevard and Heil Avenue at about 6:30 p.m. to find a pedestrian in the roadway and a silver 2004 Toyota Corolla, according to a news release.
Preliminary investigation shows the Corolla was being driven southbound on Beach when it struck the pedestrian who was outside of the crosswalk, authorities said.
The 76-year-old driver of the Corolla remained at the scene and cooperated with officers. Authorities do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.
The incident closed the southbound lanes of Beach, between Edinger and Heil avenues, for about four hours, according to the agency’s Twitter account.
