March 15, 2010 |  8:39 am

Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu was closed in both directions Monday morning after a female pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run accident, police said.

The accident occurred near Winding Way during the predawn hours when it was still dark out, said Lt. Scott Chew of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Malibu-Lost Hills station.

"We don't have a suspect description at the moment, just that it was possibly a white car that got away," Chew said.

[Updated at 1:10 p.m.: Pacific Coast Highway was reopened in both directions shortly after noon. The victim, who still has not been identified by authorities, was described as a woman in her 70s]
