Reckless Drivers in Long Beach Kill Pedestrian

Comments Off

A woman crossing the road at Paramount Boulevard between Candlewood Street and 55th Street. Two cars were speeding down the street, one in pursuit of the other. One of the vehicles hit the pedestrian in Long Beach.

Both drivers were driving about 60 mph in a 35 mph zone, Pratt said.

There was a dispute between the drivers, and Wiswell, who was driving in front of Anderson, slammed on his brakes, causing Anderson to swerve left in an attempt to avoid a collision, according to police.

The victim was taken to Long Beach Medical Memorial Center but her injuries were too severe and she died. Both drivers were charged with reckless driving and vehicular homicide.
