Update: Man is Killed in Long Beach Crash

Long Beach police identified the driver as a 27-year-old local resident.

Updated with a new story and police correction of fatally injured driver's residence.

A man killed today in a crash at Pacific Coast Highway and Anaheim Street has been identified by police as a 27-year-old Stanton resident whose convertible ended up plowed into a sign

The driver, Trevor Stevens, died at the scene of the crash, said L.A. County Coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter.

The Long Beach Police Department Tuesday afternoon provided new details about the 6:30 a.m. collision. Police department spokesperson Nancy Pratt said in an e-mailed news release that while two cars were involved in an initial accident, the second car was not involved in the final crash.

Stevens was driving north in the 5200 block of PCH in a white, convertible 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse when he sideswiped a silver 2011 Ford Edge, which caused minor damage to the Edge's left front fender, Pratt wrote, continuing:

"The Mitsubishi driver accelerated and drove northbound PCH, in the southbound lanes, toward oncoming traffic. The Mitsubishi driver turned westbound toward Anaheim Street, drove over the sidewalk, and collided with the building sign at northwest corner of PCH and Anaheim Street.

"It is unknown if drugs and/or alcohol were involved, but the investigation remains ongoing.  No other person were injured."  

Police asked that those with information about the crash contact Long Beach Police Accident Investigation Detective Brian Watt at (562) 570-7355. Anonymous tips may be submitted by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), texting TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or visiting www.lacrimestoppers.org.
