Long Beach Accident on 710 Freeway Takes the Life of 1 Pedestrian and Injures Another

(June 24, 2018) – A local news source reported an accident early Saturday morning that claimed the life of a pedestrian and injured another on the 710 Freeway in Long Beach. The fatal accident took place north of Del Amo Boulevard at approximately 2:06 a.m. Saturday morning. Two unidentified men were reportedly hit by a 2005 Honda Civic on the northbound side of the 710 Freeway.

According to the report, emergency crews were immediately on the scene to assist both pedestrians. One of the pedestrians apparently suffered from injuries that turned out to be fatal due to the impact of the crash. The identity of the man who died has not been released in order to properly notify his family first. The other victim whose name and condition have not been released was reportedly transported to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center to be treated for his injuries.

The exact cause of the crash is currently being investigated, and police have reason to believe that alcohol may have been involved. The California Highway Patrol has not released any information on the motorist. As of right now, our thoughts and prayers are with both the deceased victims’ family and loved ones as well as the victim in the hospital.

Wrongful Death Attorney

Investigators take any accident that results in injury and/or death very seriously. Each and every factor of the accident must be thoroughly investigated in order to determine who was at fault for the crash. Police will be looking at the condition of the driver to figure out if speed, alcohol, distracted driving, or other forms of negligence behind the wheel were involved. They will also be looking at exactly where the accident occurred in order to determine things such as right-of-way on behalf of the pedestrians.

Depending on the outcome of the investigation, there would likely be a reason for a wrongful death claim. The incredibly high costs associated with funerals, hospital bills, and lost wages often convince many victims and/or their loved ones to seek compensation. Of course, this is the victim or victims’ family’s choice to make.
