A pedestrian is in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle Tuesday night near Beach Boulevard and Talbert Avenue.

Huntington Beach Police Department spokeswoman Jessica Cuchilla said an emergency call was logged at about 10 p.m. regarding a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian. The car — a silver Chevrolet Spark — was traveling southbound on Beach Boulevard on a green light when the pedestrian was allegedly crossing the street against the signal.

The pedestrian, whom police have not identified, was transported to a local hospital and remained there as of Wednesday afternoon.


Cuchilla said officers, upon arriving at the scene, shut down all southbound lanes on Beach Boulevard between Newman and Talbert avenues. Those lanes were reopened shortly after midnight Wednesday morning. Cuchilla said an investigation on the collision is ongoing, but alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
