Pacific Coast Highway reopens eight hours after fatal crash
Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu reopened about eight hours after a head-on collision Saturday morning killed a young passenger in one of the cars.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Lamont Stringer said the highway opened about 4 p.m. but that traffic was still congested. The fatal accident occurred about 8:10 a.m. when a vehicle traveling east crossed the center median and collided with another vehicle traveling west.
Authorities described the person killed in the westbound vehicle only as a “juvenile.” The driver was injured.
Melanie Flores, a supervisor for the county Fire Department said crews took three critically injured patients to hospitals by helicopter and two by ambulance.
She had no further information on the passenger who died.ALSO:
