Fatal Collision

A field sobriety test is conducted.

Update, 7:54 p.m.: There was no estimate for the reopening of Pacific Coast Highway as of 7:54 p.m. Friday, following a fatal collision in the area of PCH and Rambla Pacifico, according to an official with the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station. The official reported it was too soon to know when lanes would re-open and too early to indicate whether drugs or alcohol were a possible factor in the crash.

7:26 p.m.: A pedestrian crossing Pacific Coast Highway Friday evening was struck by a vehicle driving eastbound (southbound) along Pacific Coast Highway near the 21000 block of PCH—in the area of Rambla Pacifico/Las Flores Canyon Road.

Eyewitnesses reported the victim was an adult male and Calabasas resident. A Malibu Times reporter on scene of the accident confirmed the victim had been killed; officials at the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station were not immediately able to provide additional information when reached by telephone.
