A pedestrian was killed in Long Beach early Sunday after being struck several times in a hit-and-run crash, officials said.

The incident was reported about 12:45 a.m. near the intersection of Anaheim Street and Ohio Avenue, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

A preliminary investigation indicated that a driver in a white or beige Ford Expedition crashed into a female pedestrian who was crossing Anaheim Street from the northeast curb of Ohio Avenue in an unmarked crosswalk, police said.

The driver then reversed and made a right turn before crashing into the victim a second time and driving from the scene.

The pedestrian was then struck by a 2006 Cadillac driven by a 49-year-old Compton man who remained at the scene, officials said.

Long Beach Fire Department personnel responded to the scene and declared the victim dead at the scene. She has not been identified.

Anyone with information about the incident can call Detective David Lauro at 562-570-7355.
