Two separate collisions closed westbound lanes of Pacific Coast Highway at Topanga Canyon Boulevard late Sunday afternoon, and two victims were airlifted from the scene, according to Lt. Jim Royal of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s station.

Around 4 p.m., deputies responded to the scene of a vehicle collision involving a motorcycle heading west on PCH.

Less than five minutes later, another accident was reported involving a vehicle and a cyclist near the initial collision.

Two victims were reportedly injured and airlifted from Topanga State Beach to local hospitals by the Los Angeles County Fire Department Air Operations. 

Details surrounding the collisions and the extent of injuries are still unknown at this time.

Both westbound lanes of PCH heading into Malibu were closed and traffic was rerouted around the scene.

By 5 p.m., both lanes were reopened and traffic delays subsided around 5:30 p.m.

Additional assistance was provided by the California Highway Patrol.
