Long Beach Police say one man is dead after his car hit the center median on Wardlow Road, sending his car careening on the wrong side of the street, rolling over, and crashing into a tree, the LBPD told the Post.

Details: The crash occurred at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday near the intersection of Lakewood Boulevard and Wardlow Road. The victim was trapped in the car, and LBFD personnel had to use the jaws of life to free the man from the twisted metal.

  • LBFD only described the driver as a male in his 50s who later died at a nearby hospital.

  • The crash caused a small fire, but a civilian armed with a fire extinguisher put out the blaze.
