This is the intersection of Kanan and PCH in Malibu. This happened last week.

Driver of the vehicle that ran the light had just been booted from a local rehab center. He stole the car and used it to commit suicide. He was the only fatality.

Motorcycle rider was hospitalized but is OK.

Other truck driver was fine.


That is a notoriously dangerous intersection. Kanan used to be a truck route and trucks would lose their brakes coming down the canyon and smash in to that hillside. They built a runoff 3 decades ago, as shown in the video, with the yellow trash cans that are at the end of a 1000' gravel trap. It wasn't enough. They've since outlawed big trucks on that road.


I drive through that intersection on a weekly basis. Crazy how many accidents happen there.
