Authorities looking for red pickup truck involved in a fatal hit-and-run

Long Beach, California – The images of a red pickup truck involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident in Long Beach downtown on Monday evening have been released by the police.

Authorities are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating the driver of the truck, which seems to be a two-door model from the late 1990s to early 2000s.

According to the Long Beach Police Department, the motorist struck a woman on Fourth Street near The Promenade at 5:25 p.m. Monday and then fled the scene.

Before becoming dislodged from the car, she was dragged westbound down Fourth Street, according to authorities. A Chevy Camaro then struck her on Fourth Street and dragged her westbound to Pine Avenue before stopping, according to police.

The woman who died at the site has yet to be identified by authorities. According to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, she was in her 40s.

The driver of the Camaro cooperated with the police, had a valid driver’s license, and was not suspected of impaired driving.

Anyone with information on the red pickup truck is asked to contact Detectives Kelsey Myers and Joseph Johnson at 562-570-7355. Crime Stoppers can be contacted anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at lacrimestoppers.org.
