|(Jan. 13, 2019, 1:40 p.m.) -- Near noon Sunday (Jan. 13), LBPD issued a release with the results of its preliminary investigation into a fatal Friday night (Jan. 11) traffic accident on Obispo Ave. just south of Broadway.
LBPD's release text notes that the Coroner's Office hasn't released the deceased's identity pending notification of next of kin. The delay isn't unusual when a person is pronounced deceased at a hospital, because the Coroner's office doesn't yet have possession of the body. However, yesterday (Jan. 12), a number of media outlets (citing his employer and a close friend) reported that the deceased was Sean Belk, 36, a Long Beach journalist whose byline appeared in the Signal Tribune preceded by the Long Beach Journal.
LBPD's release text follows:
On January 11, 2019, at approximately 8:36 p.m., officers responded to the area of Obispo Avenue and Broadway regarding a head on traffic collision between two vehicles, which resulted in the death of a male adult.
