Boy, Father Hurt in Accident Expected to be OK

Caltrans maintenance crews work to replace a traffic pole that was knocked over in a crash on Tuesday, Nov. 19 at the intersection of Morning View Drive and Pacific Coast Highway. Four people were injured in the crash, including a 11-year-old boy who was thrown from one vehicle that overturned. 

An 11-year-old boy and his father, both Malibu locals, are expected to fully recover from injuries suffered in a car accident last Wednesday on Pacific Coast Highway and Morning View Drive.

Just before 9 a.m., Reef Graham and his father Sean were stopped in their car at Morning View and PCH when they were rear-ended by another vehicle. Their car rolled over and the boy was ejected from the vehicle. He suffered a broken elbow and bruises/abrasions, his mother Tabby said in an email to The Malibu Times. Reef was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center. Sean Graham was taken to the hospital via ambulance, needing stitches for a forehead injury.

Two others were injured in the crash as well, but their conditions are unknown. The crash knocked out the traffic light at Morning View and PCH for nearly two days. 

Tabby Graham reached out to The Malibu Times after many online readers inquired about the boy and father’s conditions. 

“The fact that there both doing so well is truly a miracle and we feel blessed beyond words…To every person, the paramedics, the [Sheriff’s Department] and CHP, the airlift crew, the locals out for walks, the people driving by, the friends that have called, [texted]…we are grateful for you all,” Tabby Graham wrote.
