Man killed in Long Beach hit-and-run, suspect at large

Police are searching for a hit-and-run suspect that left a man dead in Long Beach in February.

On Feb. 19, Long Beach officers found a man lying on the road near the area of Pacific Coast Highway between Pasadena Avenue and Linden Avenue around 6:30 p.m.

Investigators said the victim was crossing PCH when he was struck by a vehicle. The suspect driver did not stop to render aid and fled the scene, police said.

Paramedics transported the victim to a local hospital with what “appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries at the time,” officials said. 

While hospitalized, the victim’s condition began to deteriorate and he later died on March 24. 

Police have released a surveillance image of the suspect’s vehicle which appears to be a dark-colored sedan with a missing driver-side mirror.
