A woman died Tuesday night (February 14, 2017) after being struck by a car on Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach

HUNTINGTON BEACH – A woman died Tuesday night (February 14, 2017) after being struck by a car on Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach, police said.
Officers were called to Pacific Coast Highway and Newland Street at about 8:40 p.m. after getting reports that a pedestrian was on the road, a Huntington Beach police watch commander said. When officers arrived, they found the injured 46-year-old woman, who had been hit by a Toyota Sienna. She was taken to a trauma center but pronounced dead shortly afterward.

The driver of the car, an 81-year-old Seal Beach man, was hospitalized for injuries, but was cooperative with authorities. Based on a preliminary investigation, officers believe the Sienna was traveling westbound on PCH and struck the woman as she walked northbound through the intersection, police Sgt. Julio Mendez said.

Both the north and southbound lanes of Pacific Coast Highway were closed from Newland Street to Magnolia Street until about midnight.  It was unclear if the pedestrian was using a crosswalk at the time or whether the driver ran through a traffic signal. The investigation was ongoing Wednesday morning.

Anyone with information can call Huntington Beach police Accident Investigator Joshua Page at 714-536-5670 or Investigator Mark Van Meter at 714-536-5666. Anonymous tips can be given to Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-847-6227.
