At least one person was killed Saturday morning after a head-on collision on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu that shut down traffic in both directions, authorities said.

At about 8:10 a.m., a vehicle traveling eastbound crossed the center median and collided with another vehicle traveling westbound, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Anthony Arnold.

A passenger in the westbound vehicle, a juvenile, was killed and the driver was injured, he said.

The vehicle that was struck spun out and hit another westbound vehicle. It is unknown if there were other injuries, Arnold said.

Both lanes of the highway were closed following the accident and were expected to remain closed into the afternoon, Arnold said.
