On June 14, 2016 at approximately 10:18 p.m., officers responded to the intersection of Lemon St. and Valencia Dr. to reports of a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle. When they arrived they found a 21 year old female lying in the westbound lanes of Valencia Dr. with severe injuries. She was transported to UCI Medical Center by the paramedics where she was pronounced deceased.

A preliminary investigation shows that the female pedestrian was struck by a red Toyota Tacoma while she was crossing Valencia Dr. It is unknown at this time if the pedestrian was within the crosswalk when she was struck.  The 39 year old male driver of the Toyota remained on scene and is cooperating with the investigation. He was not injured during the collision. Alcohol or drugs does not appear to be a factor in the collision.

The collision is still under investigation at this time. Anyone with information about the collision is encouraged to contact the Fullerton Police Traffic Bureau at (714) 738-5313.

Those wishing to provide information anonymously can call the Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1(855) TIP-OCCS.
