SO CAL: Long Beach Police Search for Fatal Hit-and-Run Driver; Rookie Firefighter Persuades Hollywood Freeway Jumper to Surrender

US & World News

The crash happened in front of a senior complex in Long Beach, where Morris lived for the past decade. Her daughter said Morris was on her way to shop at the Smart & Final across the street around 6 a.m. when she was struck by a silver four-door compact car.

One business owner, who turned over security video to police, said the driver did not hit the brakes before the crash nor stop until about 40 to 50 feet after hitting Morris.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said a rookie firefighter, Kenneth Fraser, was off-duty and heading home when he was pulled off the freeway. He noticed the man on the overpass. The rookie then stopped his car and went to go speak to the man, authorities said.

Fraser continued talking to the man, developing a rapport with him, according to the LAFD.

Authorities placed inflatable cushions underneath both sides of the overpass in case the man jumped.
