18-Wheeler/Mustang Collide Near Pepperdine

One northbound PCH lane near John Tyler Drive was closed for a period of time on Thursday afternoon following a collision between an 18-wheeler and a Mustang shortly before 12 p.m. Both northbound lanes were closed for approximately 20 minutes.

A Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station spokesperson said Kelsey Bryant, 18, was turning onto John Tyler from southbound PCH when she failed to yield for the truck traveling northbound on the highway. The truck driver, 32-year-old Jimmy Prado of Santa Paula, attempted to swerve out of the way, but hit the mustang and took out an electric walk/stop sign.

Bryant, who was reported to be a Pepperdine University student, was not injured. Prado complained of head, neck and back pain. He was transported to the hospital, but the Lost Hills spokesperson said his injuries were not considered serious.

The Malibu Times is the first newspaper in Malibu, serving the community since 1946.
