Around 1 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, two vehicles collided on Pacific Coast Highway between Paradise Cove and Winding Way. 

Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriffs, California Highway Patrol, and Malibu Volunteers on Patrol were at the scene. 

According to Sgt. James Arens two vehicles were involved. One driver was transported to a nearby hospital to be evaluated. The other driver was pronounced deceased when paramedics arrived. 

“The sedan was driving eastbound and ended up in the westbound lane where the van was driving westbound, the two collided and the driver of the sedan was pronounced deceased,” Arens said. “CPR was performed but was unsuccessful.” 

Instead of closing both lanes, Sheriffs and Malibu VOP were guiding traffic. 

“Instead of shutting down the road completely we are alternating traffic unsing the eastbound #2 lane, until we can get the road reopened,” he said.

Arens said at this time, it does not appear that speeding was involved. The incident is still under investigation.

“It’s possible that there was a medical issue, but there is a possibility that that occured,” he said.

There were no other drivers or passengers involved.
