One Killed in Long Beach Pedestrian Crash at South Street and Cerritos Avenue

Long Beach, California – A pedestrian died following a Long Beach accident that occurred in the area of South Street and Cerritos Avenue.

According to the Long Beach police, a 24-year-old Long Beach man was trying to cross the intersection when he stopped in the middle of westbound South Street. He stopped to wait for eastbound traffic to clear.

The man was hit by a 2011 Toyota Camry driven by a 19-year-old Chino Hills driver. The man was also hit by a 2005 Nissan Quest driven by a 54-year-old Long Beach driver.

The Long Beach Fire Department responded to the cash and transported the victim to a hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

The drivers of both vehicles remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigators.

Police said distraction and impairment were not believed to be factors in the accident.

The accident is under investigation.

Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
