Fatal Motor Vehicle Versus Pedestian Collison

On Saturday, January 6th, 2018 at approximately 9:01 PM, Fullerton Police Officers responded to the 100 block of West Orangethorpe Avenue regarding a traffic collision, possibly involving a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle. Upon arrival, officers located a male pedestrian with significant, life threatening injuries.

Initial investigation suggests that the unidentified male pedestrian was crossing, on foot northbound, in the 100 block of West Orangethorpe Avenue when he wa...s struck by a 2017 black Audi S3, which was travelling westbound on West Orangethorpe Avenue at the time. The 27-year-old male driver of the Audi remained at the scene and he is cooperating with Accident Investigators.

Fullerton Fire paramedics arrived and immediately started to perform life saving measures on the unidentified male pedestrian. He was transported to a local trauma center where, sadly, he was pronounced deceased as a result of the injuries sustained in the collision. The male pedestrian did not possess any identification at the time of the collision and therefore he has not yet been identified.

Neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be a factor in the collision and the investigation is still ongoing.
