Malibu, CA – One Dead in Pacific Coast Hwy. Head-On Crash

Malibu, CA (July 6, 2024) – A deadly head-on crash was reported in Malibu on Thursday evening, July 4. The crash happened just after 10:00 p.m. in the 22000 block of the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH).

Officials say that a 2019 Mercedes Benz was traveling eastbound on the PCH when the driver crossed the center median and struck a 2020 Cadillac SUV head on. The driver of the Cadillac was seriously injured and was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the Cadillac, along with the Mercedes driver, was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The road was closed for several hours while police investigated the incident. There is no word on what caused the Mercedes to travel left of center at this time. No one involved has been identified, and the collision remains under investigation by local law enforcement officials.

We would like to offer our condolences to the victim’s family following this deadly car accident in Malibu.

Fatal Car Accidents in California

California can be a dangerous state for motorists. With more than 3,000 fatalities reported in car accidents each year, our state accounts for more than 10% of all reported traffic accident fatalities in the United States. Deadly collisions can occur for several reasons. Most often, however, a negligent driver is to blame. Speeding is the number one cause of fatal accidents in California, followed by impaired driving and distraction. The cause of every accident will be carefully investigated in order to determine who is responsible.

The personal injury laws in California allow victims or family members to recover compensation when they have suffered a loss due to someone else’s negligence.
