Former CSULB lecturer charged with making a false police report in fatal hit-&-run

Former Long Beach State lecturer Kimberly Ann Burch, 39, has been charged with making a false police report and being an accessory after the fact over a fatal hit and run in Huntington Beach over the weekend.


According to Huntington Beach Police, on December 19, a 66-year-old male pedestrian was struck on Pacific Coast Highway, near 24th street. When police arrived at the scene, they determined the victim's injuries were consistent with a person being struck by a vehicle.

  • As police were investigating, an adult female identified as 39-year-old Kimberly Burch of Surfside told officers she was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee that struck the now-deceased man.

  • After placing Burch under arrest, investigators determined that her husband, 37-year-old Daniel Burch of Surfside, was indeed the real driver of the Jeep and fled the scene after striking the man.

  • Daniel Burch was charged with hit and run, resulting in death or injury. Both made bail.

  • According to Burch's LinkedIn page, she was with CSULB for the past six years in various positions ranging from a teaching assistant, graduate assistant, and lecturer.

What they were saying:

CSULB spokesperson Jim Milbury says, "Our records indicate a Kimberly Burch was a part-time lecturer at CSULB whose contract ended on August 17 2021."
