Orson Bean, 91, and husband of The Bold and the Beautiful's Alley Mills (Pam), was killed in a traffic accident in Venice, CA last evening. Multiple news outlets report he was walking near Venice Boulevard and Shell Avenue Friday evening when he was struck by two cars. 

Los Angeles Police Captain Brian Wendling stated,

The car coming westbound did not see him and clipped him and he went down. A second vehicle was coming up, was distracted by people trying to slow him down and then looked up and then a second traffic collision occurred and that one was fatal.
