Two Car Accidents Shut Down Pacific Coast Highway
Not one, but two different accidents shut down portions of the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on Monday, July 20. Both accidents involved six different vehicles and an unknown number of people, causing chaos on the popular roadway.
The first crash
The first accident occurred at about 7:25pm on Monday, July 20, near Kanan Dume Road on the Pacific Coast Highway.
According to Imy McBride and Greg Evans, the Los Angeles County Fire Department Supervisor and Lt. of the Malibu-Lost Hills Sheriff’s station, respectively, this crash involved at least two vehicles, one of which was overturned in the accident.
Luckily, no one was taken to the hospital, but all Westbound lanes were closed for approximately an hour and a half while the scene was cleared.
The second crash
The second accident took place around 8:22 pm. Lt. Evans reported that the crash was near Corral Canyon Road on the Pacific Coast Highway. One victim was taken to the hospital. The current status of that victim is unknown.
This second crash also closed down lanes of the PCH. Both Eastbound lanes were closed from approximately 8:30pm to 11:52pm.
All too common
As evidenced by the events of July 20, car accidents are all too common, leaving many victims injured, out of work, in pain, and losing money from mounting medical bills.
