Pedestrian Dies in Hit-and-Run Crash on Pacific Coast Highway in Wilmington
WILMINGTON, CA (April 4, 2023) — A man died in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident on Pacific Coast Highway at Wilmington Boulevard.
According to reports, paramedics arrived at the intersection around 5:20 p.m. Sunday to find a 52-year-old man dead at the scene. Authorities learned that the pedestrian was walking northbound across Pacific Coast Highway against a red traffic light. As he crossed the marked crosswalk, an oncoming Scion xB struck him.
Although the driver of the Scion pulled over to help the injured man, a second driver in a dark-colored sedan that ran over him did not.
Now, the police need the public’s help to look for the driver in that vehicle. A standing reward of up to $50,000 will be offered to anyone who can help solve this fatal hit-and-run.
