Three vehicles were involved in an early morning traffic collision Saturday on Pacific Coast Highway north of Sunset that resulted in a fatality and injuries to five others.
Around 4:10 a.m., between Coastline Drive and Porto Marina the driver of a vehicle going southbound on PCH rear-ended a vehicle that was parked on the south curb by the beach.
The second car, on impact, went off the road and onto the beach. The two people in the car were ejected from the vehicle onto the sand. The passenger in the second vehicle, a male his 30s, died. The driver of the second vehicle, a male in his 30s, suffered minor injuries.
The second car then struck a third car. The sole male in the third car was transported with minor injuries. Both parked cars were located in an area where “No Parking” signs are posted.
According to eyewitness reports, the male driver (age 31) in the first car may have been under the influence and a warrant was being obtained for a blood test. The two passengers in that vehicle, a male in his 20s and a female, 29, also suffered minor injuries.
