It's hard out there for a Vespa. A young man riding his scooter in Long Beach was struck by a car and died, reports the Long Beach Press-Telegram.
The 18-year-old man, Zachary Kurzawinski of Hawthorne, was driving past the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Santa Fe Avenue yesterday at 8:30 a.m. when a 43-year-old man driving a Toyota hit him as the car switched lanes to get into a parking lot. Kurzawinski was taken to a hospital where he later died.
The driver was released at the scene.
