Four Women Tragically Killed In PCH Crash, Driver Arrested

Four ladies were struck by a car as they stood on the side of the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, according to authorities. The driver has been detained. Additionally, several parked cars were struck.

Around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, the incident was reported in the 21500 block of Pacific Coast Highway.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported that a male motorist lost control of his car and struck two parked cars. Four women who were standing by the side of the road were ki!!ed when the driver impacted the second set of parked cars, according to the authorities.

Two further people were taken by ambulance to a hospital in uncertain condition.

At first, the male driver was held. Authorities reported Tuesday night that a sobriety test revealed no signs of drug or alcohol use.

The motorist was taken into custody, according to a sheriff’s representative on Wednesday morning. Both the suspect’s identity and the potential charges against him were kept a secret. The collisions were thought to have involved at least four vehicles.

Vehicles that had been extensively damaged were present at the scene, along with bodies. According to the source, the crash was probably caused by speed.

“As soon as it happened I knew exactly what it was — car accident. It’s happened here a lot,” Malibu resident Barron Miller told reporters at the scene.

Authorities are looking into the possibility that two drivers were street racing at the time of the accident. It is a developing issue, according to locals, along that section of PCH.

“Since COVID there has been an increase of incredible racing up and down this highway, all night long,” Joan Zoloth of Malibu said.

“People in the community have complained and are really concerned,” Zoloth stated. “And then you have something like this.”

The Pacific Coast Highway was closed between Las Flores Canyon Road and Carbon Canyon Road in both directions. As of Wednesday morning, there was no indication of when the lanes would open.

“This one’s tough. There’s just a lot of carnage, just metal carnage,” L.A. County Fire Capt. Sheila Kelliher Berkoh said. “Anytime you come and there’s four bodies that didn’t survive, that’s a tough one to watch.”
