Kathy Sieberhein, 44, succumbed to her injuries at 12:47 a.m. Thursday at Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, according to the Orange County coroner’s office.
Huntington Beach police responded to a report of an accident on Adams Avenue near Ranger Lane at about 6:15 p.m. Wednesday and found Sieberhein lying in the street and a red 2001 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck nearby, according to a statement from police.
