Man Hit By Car on Seal Beach Boulevard Near Rossmoor

Police are investigating an accident that left a 20-year-old man seriously injured after he was struck by a car at the intersection of Seal Beach Boulevard and St. Cloud Drive.

A 20-year-old man was seriously injured today when he was struck by a car at the intersection of Seal Beach Boulevard and St. Cloud Drive.

According to the Seal Beach Police Department, the accident was not drug or alcohol related, and no arrests were made.

It happened at 7:04 p.m. today as the man attempted to cross Seal Beach Boulevard at the crosswalk at St. Cloud Drive. A driver turning right onto Seal Beach Boulevard out of the Target Shopping Center near CVS, struck the man with the side view mirror, said Sgt. Raul Ahumada.

“Either they didn’t see him as they were turning or he may have stepped into the traffic lane,” said Ahumada. The investigation is still in the early stages, and police are asking witnesses to come forward by calling the department at 799-4100 X 1119.

The pedestrian’s injuries were serious enough for paramedics to consider highly critical, a designation used in serious or deadly accidents to trigger an investigation by the multi-agency Accident Reconstruction Team.

It is the third accident involving pedestrians and cars this month. A woman was killed while crossing PCH in Surfside the same weekend three cyclists were struck in a hit and run accident involving an allegedly drunk driver.

I was on the scene and placed the call to 911. When I arrived, a woman was running from her car - in the bus loading zone - to the injured pedestrian. I'm not sure if she was the driver. It saddens me that the two cars in front of me passed without stopping. How could they not notice a pedestrian laying face down in the crosswalk? Thankfully, two other drivers stopped after me to help.

That was me that stopped to help him... I am eager to know if he is ok. Can anyone update me as I was in CA on business and am now back in Michigan.
