On January 19, 2018, at approximately 10:33 PM, officers were dispatched to the intersection of Long Beach Boulevard and Spring Street regarding an injury traffic collision involving two vehicles, which resulted in the death of a female adult.

Officers arrived on scene and discovered a 2000 Ford Mustang, occupied by three males, and a 2015 Honda Civic, occupied by a male and a female, both at rest with major collision damage on Long Beach Boulevard south of the intersection.

The preliminary investigation determined the Ford, being driven by a 21-year-old male resident of Compton, was traveling southbound on Long Beach Boulevard in excess of 60 MPH when it broadsided a 2015 Honda Civic, being driven by an unidentified male, turning west onto Spring Street from northbound Long Beach Boulevard.

Both occupants of the Honda Civic were injured. The female passenger, identified as a 20-year-old female from Long Beach, succumbed to her injuries and was determined deceased at the scene by Long Beach Fire Department personnel. Her identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The male driver was transported to a local area hospital with critical injuries.

All the occupants of the Ford Mustang were transported to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol and drug intoxication is being investigated as a contributing factor in the collision. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone who may have information regarding this collision is asked to call Long Beach Police Collision Investigation Detective David Whelan at (562) 570-7355.
