Pedestrian killed while crossing Pacific Coast Highway

A man was struck and killed by a car when he tried to run across Pacific Coast Highway on Tuesday night, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 6:40 p.m. between Encinal Canyon Road and Mulholland Highway and closed Pacific Coast Highway in both directions for hours.

The man, whom authorities did not identify, was running across the highway illegally with two other people after fishing near El Pescador State Beach, said Sgt. John Skikas of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

"He appears to be at fault," Skikas said. "No citation was issued against the driver."
