Beach Boulevard gets some of the worst traffic in Huntington Beach. Throw in the high number of pedestrians, several bars, and frequent eye candy and you get a recipe for disaster. The driver of a pickup truck learned this lesson the hard way late Wednesday evening when he struck a pedestrian and tried to make a run for it.
According to the ocregister, the driver of a pickup truck that police believe struck and critically injured a pedestrian late Wednesday was arrested minutes later on suspicion of hit-and-run. The collision happened around 10 p.m. at the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Chrysler Drive, according to Sgt. Nikitin. The pedestrian was hospitalized and is now in critical but stable condition.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the pedestrian who was injured in this horrible car accident. Hopefully no permanent damage was inflicted and that he or she will endure a speedy recovery.
