Long Beach- Female Pedestrian Killed And A Male Pedestrian Seriously Injured After Being Struck on Pacific Avenue

A female pedestrian was struck and killed in a hit-and-run crash in Long Beach just before midnight on Tuesday, June 25, 2019. The said female pedestrian was identified as 30-year old Elyssa Negrete from Wilmington, CA. Negrete was crossing Pacific Avenue at Burnett Street when a car fatally struck her. Negrete succumbed to her injuries in a hospital when she was taken there. A man walking along side Negrete on the crosswalk was also struck by the vehicle and was critically injured. The driver of the vehicle that struck the 2 pedestrians was reportedly a 35-year old man from Wilmington, as well. According to detectives, they are still investigating whether nor not the driver knew Negrete or was just simply driving near the street where the victim was walking at the time of the crash. The driver reportedly walked away after the accident. The police is searching for the driver. The vehicle was reportedly white in color, possibly a four-door car. However, investigators are unsure of the model of the vehicle. The vehicle was last seen travelling south on Pacific Avenue. According to an eye witness, the vehicle involved in the crash did not brake at all before hitting the 2 pedestrians.
