Woman killed in North Long Beach motorcycle crash

A 22-year-old woman died after she crashed her motorcycle into a van Sunday night in North Long Beach, according to LBPD.


According to police, the motorcyclist, driving a 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 400, was heading north on Cherry Avenue when she collided with a Ford Econoline van as the Ford driver was parked along the curb and was attempting to enter traffic on Cherry Avenue.

  • Police were dispatched to the 6000 block of Cherry Avenue at about 6:15 p.m. and would offer life-saving measures on the motorcyclist at the scene. Still, she later succumbed to her injuries at a nearby hospital.

  • The driver of the Ford Econoline was only identified as a 72-year-old male resident of Lakewood who waited on the scene, had a valid driver's license, and cooperated with the investigation.

  • Police say the motorcyclist did not have a proper endorsement to drive a motorcycle. The entire identity of the motorcyclist is being withheld pending notification of next-of-kin by the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.
