The crash was reported about 2:45 p.m. near the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Chapman Avenue, said Lt. Lane Lagaret.

Two vehicles were heading south on Beach Boulevard when the driver in an Acura crashed into a SUV then lost control. After the crash, the Acura continued south, jumped the curb and hit the victim, who "went flying," Lagaret said.

The Acura kept going across the street and crashed into several parked cars.

The victim was taken to the hospital, where he later died, according to the Orange County Register.

The driver stayed at the scene of the crash, the newspaper reported, and no arrests have been made.

It is unclear if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash, which is under investigation, Lagaret said.
