The Orange County Sheriff’s Department has identified the victim of a fatal traffic collision involving two vehicles striking a pedestrian in Huntington Beach Friday night as 55-year-old Eric Steffen Bolton.

The motorists driving those vehicles stayed at the scene to cooperate with police, according to law enforcement authorities.

Officers responded at about 10 p.m. to a crash on Warner Avenue and Beach Boulevard that involved a silver 2022 Lexus IS 500 and a blue 2011 Ford Fusion, according to Jessica Cuchilla of the Huntington Beach Police Department.


The Lexus was going eastbound on Warner just west of Beach when it struck a pedestrian who was outside the crosswalk, Cuchilla said.

The Ford, which was also going eastbound on Warner, struck the pedestrian shortly afterward, she said. The victim, Bolton, was rushed to a hospital, where he later died from his injuries, she said.

“The Lexus driver, a 28-year-old male from Huntington Beach, and the Ford driver, a 61-year-old male from Newport Beach, remained at the scene and fully cooperated with officers,” she said. “Impairment did not appear to be a factor for either of the drivers.”

Police did not provide Bolton’s city of residence.

Huntington Beach police urged anyone with information regarding the crash to call them at (714) 536-5231.
