Coroner Names Kim Lien Dao as Victim of Fountain Valley Pedestrian Accident

On Wednesday, July 8th, the Orange County Coroner’s Office revealed the name of the pedestrian killed in a collision in Fountain Valley, California.  Kim Lieng Dao, 76, died after getting struck by two vehicles at different times.

According to the Fountain Valley Police Department, the accident happened at Euclid Street north of Edinger Avenue on Saturday night, July 4th. Officers arrived at the scene at about 8:11 p.m. after a 911 call, and they found Dao trapped underneath a 2012 Mercedes-Benz C250.

The accident report stated that the woman was unresponsive, and the medics pronounced her dead. The driver of the Mercedes was still at the scene, and he cooperated with the investigators; they released him with no charges. The FVPD believe that an unidentified vehicle first struck Da, and fled the area without stopping to help.

Witnesses told the police that the first car is possibly a white or silver crossover or sports utility vehicle. The investigators are currently reviewing the surveillance footage of the area to confirm the description, and perhaps identify the hit-and-run driver. Sgt. James Cataline of the Traffic Bureau said the vehicle mostly sustained front-end damage from the collision.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with relevant information should contact the FVPD on the listed line. Accidents create a fight or flight response in those involved, making most people leave the crash site. Traffic authorities advise that fleeing is not the answer, and encourage motorists to remain after a collision to prevent adverse legal consequences.
