Coroner’s Office Still Trying To Find Family Of Man Killed Oct. 9 On Lincoln Boulevard:

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office is still trying to locate family members of a 54-year-old homeless man killed crossing Lincoln Boulevard in Santa Monica on Oct. 9.

Coroner’s office assistant chief Ed Winter told The Mirror the identity of the man can not be released as the man’s next of kin has still not been notified of his death.

“(Investigators) are still trying to locate family,” Winter said. “He is a male Caucasian in his 50s.”

The man was struck and killed by a motorist near the cross street of Lincoln Boulevard and Pier Avenue at 12:09 am on Oct. 9.

Santa Monica Police Department Sgt. Jay Moroso said the preliminary initial investigation revealed that the driver of the vehicle, a 34-year-old female resident of Culver City, was traveling southbound on Lincoln and the pedestrian crossed Lincoln, eastbound, in front of her vehicle.

“The driver stated that she did not see the pedestrian until her vehicle struck him,” Moroso said.

Moroso said the male pedestrian sustained major trauma to his body as a result of the collision and was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The driver of the vehicle was cooperative throughout the investigation and was determined to not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol,” Moroso said. “After being interviewed, she was released pending further investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator Jason Olson at 310.458.8993 or Sergeant Phillbo Rubish at 310.458.8950 or the Santa Monica Police Department (24 hours) at 310.458.8495.
