An unidentified woman was struck and killed early Sunday morning on Pacific Coast Highway between Brookhurst and Magnolia, according to the Orange County Register.
The woman was walking at or on PCH when the collision took place just after 2 a.m., police said.
The Huntington Beach Police Department stated that a 37-year-old Newport Beach man driving a Toyota Highlander SUV struck the woman.
This was the second fatal pedestrian accident in a row for the city of Huntington Beach. A 74-year-old woman was also killed the day before at Seapoint.
The crash is under investigation by the Huntington Beach Police Department. Witnesses may contact them at 714-536-5670 or 714-536-5666.
Huntington Beach Fatal Accident Investigation
An investigation into this collision is underway to determine liability, as well as whether or not criminal charges will be filed.
If a negligent driver is at fault for a collision that left you injured or has taken the life of a loved one, there may also be grounds for a civil lawsuit or wrongful death claim. This is always a personal decision, but for many the financial losses associated with a traffic accident can be significant.
It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim even when they know their insured is responsible. They may also make an offer to settle for far less than the full amount owed.
