Police Pursuit ends in Fiery Fatal Crash along PCH in Malibu

December 1, 2017 | Filed under: Car Accident

A pedestrian is dead after being struck during a high-speed police chase of a suspected stolen vehicle that resulted in a fiery multi-vehicle collision on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu Wednesday morning Nov. 29th. The incident began around 8:00 a.m. while Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies were patrolling the east side of Zuma Beach in the 27500 block of Pacific Coast Highway, east of Kanan Dume Road, they spotted a 2014 Mazda 6, which was reported stolen 2 days earlier. The deputies made a U-turn, initiated a traffic stop, and called for backup. The stolen vehicle pulled over and a female passenger exited at which point the 22-year old suspect sped away at a high rate of speed and a pursuit ensued. The woman was taken into custody for questioning, according to an LAPD spokesman said. The on-field supervisor canceled the brief 20 second pursuit, because it was too dangerous based on the high rate of speed and the erratic driving of the suspect.

Just before the deputies called off the pursuit, the suspect lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a median, after which he struck a male gardener who was taking out trash and then slammed into 3 parked cars. 2 of the vehicles erupted in flames, which spread to some nearby vegetation. Los Angeles County firefighters responded and extinguished the cars and brush fires. The suspect was rescued by deputies from the stolen vehicle and was taken to a hospital with injuries of unknown severity. He was identified by Sgt. Bob Boese of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department only as having “various residential addresses out of the Santa Monica and Venice Beach area.” 3 deputies who rescued him also had to be treated for smoke inhalation. The 28-year old pedestrian was killed instantly. The PCH was shut down in both directions between Kanan Dume Road and Via Escondido, California Highway Patrol reports. The closure lasted through 3 p.m. the city of Malibu said. However, people were advised to avoid the area.
