Police have reported that a head-on collision might be responsible for two people getting injured on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. CBS reported on the matter.
The crash happened near the California Incline in the 1000 block of the PCH. Police had this to say in a tweet:
“@SantaMonicaFire Activity in the 1000 block of Pacific Coast Hwy. Police & Fire on scene of a severe traffic collision investigation. Pacific Coast Hwy through Santa Monica is closed in both directions until further notice.”
Traffic backed up significantly while the police finished their investigation and cleared the scene. Traffic was diverted onto 4th Street in the meantime. Two were sent to the hospital in unknown condition.
The Pacific Coast Highway is beautiful, but that beauty is dangerous. It’s easy to get distracted and let your car go into the other lane. But that’s not the only hazard. Wind and weather can make the road dangerous as well.
There is also the possibility of intoxication, though this accident happened around 1:40 PM. This causes many head-on collisions in California.
We hope that all the injured parties recover swiftly and completely, and that the responsible driver is found so they can cover the costs of this accident. It could have easily turned out much worse.
