(Oct. 30, 2005) -- A tragic accident has taken the life of a pedestrian visiting ELB from San Diego.
LBPD Public Information Officer Nancy Pratt says that at about 11:15 p.m. on Oct. 29, Tahira Anwar, 68, began crossing Atherton St. just west of Park Ave. (west of Clark Ave.) at midblock, not within a crosswalk.
PD PIO Pratt says Ms. Anwar was crossing from north to south about 120 feet west of Park when she was struck by a westbound driver. She was transported to a nearby hospital by LBFD paramedics but succumbed to her injuries.
LBPD says the driver of the vehicle, a 22 year old LB resident, is not facing charges.
