Authorities Investigate Possible DUI after Crash on Pacific Coast Highway in Topanga Beach
TOPANGA BEACH, CA (March 12, 2021) – A driver sustained injuries in a suspected DUI accident on Pacific Coast Highway in Topanga Beach Thursday night, March 4.
Around 8:30 p.m., the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to a call of a collision at Topanga Canyon Boulevard intersection.
CHP officials said a dark-green older model Chevrolet Camaro hit a truck parked along the roadway. The impact propelled the car into the sand. It then came to rest in coastal brush on a beachside bluff, with its headlights pointing down into the sand.
A tow truck was used to hoist the vehicle from the beach. A Ford SUV was also at the scene with heavy damage to its back end.
The Camaro driver sustained slight injuries from the crash. Paramedics took him to a hospital for treatment and to check for a possible DUI.
The incident remains under investigation, and no further details were available at this time.
