A 45-year-old man is dead after he was struck by a Huntington Beach Police Department vehicle Saturday morning.
The unidentified man was near the intersection of North Pacific Avenue and Broadway at about 5:35 a.m. when he was hit by a HBPD Ford Explorer that was responding to a radio call, the California Highway Patrol said in a news release.
“Unfortunately, an involved party was transported to a local area hospital where they later succumbed to their injuries,” the CHP said.
The officer, a 22-year-old Huntington Beach resident, was not injured, nor were any other HBPD officers, the release said.
