It was rough riding last night on the streets of Long Beach, as there were two reported drive-by shootings within 30 minutes of each other and a wrong-way driver killed in a head-on collision. The shootings are thought to involve a maroon-colored van that authorities are asking locals be on the lookout for; a total of four people were wounded between 2 and 3 a.m. in the attacks. The car crash involved a man in a Honda who collided with a shuttle bus head on when he'd swerved into opposing traffic while speeding on the Queensway Bridge. The driver, who wasn't carrying ID, died on scene.
