Press Release

On September 25th, 2022, at about 8:30 PM, patrol officers from the Cypress Police Department responded to a call for service regarding a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision on Graham Street, adjacent to Oak Knoll Park.   Upon their arrival, officers found the pedestrian (a male adult), who sustained fatal injuries during the collision, lying in the roadway. The subsequent investigation revealed the involved driver (Hannah Esser, 20 years old) was engaged in an altercation with the pedestrian shortly before he was struck by her vehicle. 
Because this incident appears to be an intentional act, Cypress Police Department Detectives are handling the investigation. Esser was taken into custody and later booked into Orange County Jail. The identity of the involved pedestrian is being withheld, pending notifications to next-of-kin by the Orange County Coroner.
Anyone with more information on this incident should contact Detective Reed at (714) 229-6632.
