WHITTIER, California – Agustin Guerrero Lara, 81, was struck and killed by a driver traveling eastbound on Telegraph Road early Friday morning just west of Victoria Avenue, according to a press release issued by the Orange County Sheriff Coroner Department.
The crash took place about 5:30 p.m. as Lara was crossing the roadway outside of the intersection. The 39-year-old driver of the 2008 Ford Focus that struck the man was not injured in the crash and cooperated with police.
Emergency workers responding to the pedestrian accident transported Lara to UCI Medical Center for treatment, but he was pronounced dead a short time later, the report said.
The California Highway Patrol are investigating the pedestrian accident and are asking that any witnesses contact its Santa Fe Springs office at 562-868-0503.
“Police must conduct a complete investigation into a pedestrian accident involving injury or death to determine its cause,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, an Irvine-based personal injury lawyer. “My office has handled many pedestrian claims in the past such as this one and I know the victim’s family will have a difficult time coping after such a tragic loss.”
