Liquor Store Employee Dies in Long Beach Hit-and-Run Crash on West Anaheim Street

LONG BEACH, CA (July 24, 2020) – A man was killed following a hit-and-run crash late Friday evening in Long Beach.
The crash happened around 10:40 p.m. on West Anaheim Street, just west of Magnolia Avenue.
The man, an employee of a liquor store in the 300 block of West Anaheim Street, had apparently tried to stop a suspect from driving away from store after committing a theft, police said.
In his efforts to stop the thief, he climbed on the hood of the suspect’s vehicle. The suspect drove with the man on the hood for approximately three blocks before maneuvering the vehicle to get the man off the hood.
The man fell onto the ground, and the driver of a utility van stopped to render aid, police believe. Initially, investigators thought the utility van struck the suspect and drove away.
The victim, who was in his 50s, died at the scene. His name was withheld pending family notification.
The suspect’s vehicle was described as a silver four-door sedan. The driver was a black man in his 40s, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a thin build, short dark hair and mustache.
Police asked anyone with information to call them at 562-570-7355.
