Deputy involved in fender-bender in Malibu


A deputy rear-ended a vehicle at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Las Flores Canyon Friday afternoon, according Lt. Josh Thai of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s station.

The two-car collision happened just after 3:00 p.m. as the deputy was pulling over the vehicle for a traffic violation. The crash occurred when the vehicle stopped abruptly at a yellow traffic signal as the deputy’s vehicle was approaching, said Lt. Thai.

The deputy was uninjured but the other driver was taken to a hospital after complaining of back and knee pain. Pacific Coast Highway remained open in both directions.
