• Pedestrian fatally injured at Pine and 19th in Pacific Grove

    On April 10 at approximately 7:43 a.m., a 97-year-old pedestrian was hit by a vehicle as he attempted to cross Pine Ave. at 19th Street. He was found in the roadway semi-conscious with apparent head injuries. He was transported via ambulance to an established landing zone to be airlifted to a regional trauma center but his condition was determined to be too unstable for air transportation and he was sent to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula where he succumbed at 9:11 a.m. to his injuries.

    Identification of the pedestrian, a Pacific Grove resident, is being withheld at this time pending notification of the next of kin.

    The driver, a 55-year-old Pacific Grove resident, was contacted at the scene and cooperated with police. The driver stated he was driving eastbound on Pine Avenue looking directly into the rising sun and did not see the pedestrian. Alcohol, speed, or other distractions do not appear to be a factor in this collision. The driver’s identification is also being withheld at this time due to the continuing investigation.

    The matter remains under investigation by the Pacific Grove Police Department with assistance from the California Highway Patrol. If you have any information regarding this matter, please contact the Pacific Grove Police Department at 831-648-3143.
