A 45-year-old pedestrian was fatally injured in a pre-dawn collision with a Huntington Beach Police Department vehicle on Saturday.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident took place around 5:30 a.m. on North Pacific Way near Broadway in the Sunset Beach area.

The injured man – identified only as a “John Doe” – was taken to a local hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries. 

Because an HBPD vehicle – a Ford Explorer – was involved in the collision, the CHP is taking the lead in the investigation.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or events leading up to it is encouraged to contact the CHP-Westminster Area office during business hours at (714) 892-4426.
