On June 25, at approximately 11:55pm, officers responded to the intersection of Pacific Avenue and Burnett Street regarding an injury hit-and-run traffic collision involving a vehicle and two pedestrians, according to police.

Upon arrival, officers located a non-responsive female adult and a critically injured male adult lying in the intersection. The Long Beach Fire Department responded and transported both victims, in critical condition, to a local hospital.
