Malibu auto accident injures 8

Wrecks on our California highways that involve multiple vehicles always up the ante for serious injuries of the drivers and passengers. Recently, according to local authorities, a three-vehicle accident in Malibu left eight people injured. Fire officials added that one car overturned as the result of the accident.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department noted that the auto accident occurred on the Pacific Coast Highway at approximately 10:30 p.m.

Of the eight people injured, officials have said that five of them suffered minor injuries. Reports from the Sky2 helicopter crew indicate that three other people were taken to local hospitals in serious condition.

To render care for those involved in the accident, three ambulances rushed to the scene. Both directions of the Pacific Coast Highway at Heather Cliff were closed.

At this time, there is no additional information on the cause of the accident, how many people were in each vehicle or if anybody is going to be charged for causing the pile-up.

An auto accident, regardless of the location, number of vehicles or speed, should never be taken lightly. Injuries and death can occur even in low-speed motor vehicle accidents. Sometimes factors out of the drivers' control such as extreme or sudden weather events can contribute to the crash, but in many cases the incident could have been avoided had the driver(s) made better decisions.

If a motor vehicle accident is caused by a negligent driver, the victim or victims may consider their legal options after they have received the appropriate medical treatment and are on a care schedule to reclaim their health.
