HUNTINGTON BEACH – A 34-year-old woman suspected of DUI was arrested Thursday morning after she struck a pedestrian in the street, killing him, police said.

The area around Beach Boulevard and Edinger Street, including the northbound I-405 on and off-ramps, was closed for several hours during the investigation, police said. The area re-opened around 9 a.m.
Shortly after 4 a.m., officers were called to the intersection after a blue BMW SUV traveling northbound hit a pedestrian who was on the east side of Beach Boulevard, said Huntington Beach Police Officer Jennifer Marlatt.
The pedestrian was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The driver, identified by police as 34-year-old Anastasia Hull of Lakewood, was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI.
