    Man dead after being hit by 2 cars in Huntington Beach
    • July 6, 2024

    A 55-year-old man said to be jaywalking near a major intersection in Huntington Beach died after he was hit by two cars Friday night, July 5, authorities said.

    Huntington Beach police were called to the area of Warner Avenue and Beach Boulevard about 10 p.m. and found the man in the roadway, HBPD spokeswoman Jessica Cuchilla said. He died at a hospital.

    Police learned the man, a Huntington Beach resident, was crossing Warner Avenue west of Beach Boulevard and was outside a crosswalk when he was hit by a Lexus sedan in the right eastbound lane, Cuchilla said. The man was then hit by a Ford sedan in the middle lane moments later.

    The drivers of both cars stayed and cooperated with investigators, Cuchilla said. Neither driver was believed to be driving impaired and no arrests were made.

    The identity of the pedestrian was withheld by police pending notification of his relatives.

    The crash was the second in Huntington Beach in two days. On the Fourth of July, a 27-year-old West Covina woman riding a motorcycle died in a crash with a pickup truck and a car along Pacific Coast Highway.

    The woman was traveling westbound and making a lane change when she lost control and collided with the pickup truck in the left lane and the car in the middle lane just east of Coral Cay Lane, Cuchilla said Friday. The crash occurred about 11 a.m. Thursday.

    The woman later died at a hospital, the spokeswoman said. Whether impairment factored into the crash was not known.
