Fatal Vehicle Versus Pedestrian Collision
On Saturday, November 24, 2018, at approximately 5:15 pm, Fullerton Police Officers responded to the 200 block of West Orangethorpe Avenue, in regards to reports of a pedestrian being struck by a motor vehicle.
Upon arrival, officers located a male adult in the street who was suffering from significant traumatic injuries. Officers attempted to perform lifesaving measures, but a short time later Fullerton Fire personnel pronounced the subject deceased at the scene. Traffic i...nvestigators were contacted and responded to the scene.
The preliminary investigation suggests that the male adult had been walking northbound across Orangethorpe Avenue, outside of a crosswalk, when he was struck by a 2015, red, Nissan Versa and a 2015, blue, Nissan Rogue. All parties involved in the incident were at the scene and cooperating with investigators.
It does not appear that drugs or alcohol are a factor in the collision, but this investigation is still ongoing.
