In a release this morning, LBPD says:

On Tuesday, January 15, 2013, at approximately 7:17 p.m., Long Beach Police responded to an injury traffic collision at the intersection of Bellflower Boulevard and Atherton Street, which resulted in the death of an adult female bicyclist.

Officers discovered a green 2002 Honda Odyssey, just south of the intersection, and a female bicyclist lying in the middle of the roadway. Long Beach Fire Department paramedics responded and transported the victim to a local hospital.

Later in the evening, the victim died as a result of injuries sustained in the collision.

The preliminary investigation determined the Honda Odyssey was traveling southbound on Bellflower Boulevard on a green light. The bicyclist was traveling westbound on Atherton Street, on the north side of the intersection, when she attempted to cross Bellflower Boulevard against a solid red light, just south of the crosswalk, and was struck by the Honda. The driver stopped, attempted to render aid, and called 9-1-1.

The victim, is only being identified at this time as a 50-year-old female resident of Long Beach pending notification of next of kin. The driver, a 19-year-old resident of Los Alamitos, was not injured and was released at the scene with no charges pending.
