The second vehicle, a 2011 Infinity, remained at the scene and it's driver, a 24 year old resident of Long Beach, cooperated with the investigation and was later released from the scene. The driver was uninjured.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the 2003 Nissan, driven by a 19 year old male resident of Long Beach, was northbound Shoreline Drive from Linden Avenue when he made an unsafe lane change in front of the 2011 Infinity and lost control of his vehicle. Upon losing control, the 2003 Nissan collided with the raised center median, a tree and then a concrete barrier. After colliding with the concrete barrier the 2003 Nissan spun away in a northeasterly direction, collided with the 2011 Infinity and came to rest near the east curb of Shoreline Drive, south of Ocean Blvd.
Excessive speed may have also played a part in the collision and any additional witnesses are asked to contact Detective Sirilo Garcia of the Long Beach Police Department's Collision Investigation Detail at (562) 570-7355.
