UPDATE: The Orange County Coroner’s office has identified the decedent as Gene Oquin, 59.
A man was killed when walking across a street in Huntington Beach early Saturday morning. According to the HBPD, the pedestrian was struck by two vehicles while crossing Beach Boulevard near Terry Drive.
The man, who has not been identified, sought to cross the street from the west, walking east at about 2:30 a.m. and not in a crosswalk. He was in the northbound lanes when he was hit by a red Nissan truck, and then by a white Toyota Prius.
Police say that impairment of the drivers – such as alcohol – doesn’t appear to be a factor. No citations were issued or arrests made. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Huntington Beach Police Accident Investigator Robert Barr at (714) 536-5666 or Accident Investigator Josh Page at (714) 536-5670. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to (714) 960-8811.
