Alcohol, Texting Not Considered Factors in PCH Accident

Injuries sustained in Nov. 4 accident on the Pacific Coast Highway in Pacific Palisades are considered non-life threatening, according to the LAPD.

Police determined alcohol and texting were not factors Nov. 4 accident between a Mercedes and a SUV on the Pacific Coast Highway about 600 feet south of the Temescal Canyon Road.

Last week Officer Norling of the LAPD West Traffic Division reported there were four people involved in the two-vehicle accident and three were transported to the hospital. He added that none of the injuries appeared to be life threatening.

He said the Mercedes, identifying the driver as a man in his 40s and a woman sitting passenger in her 30s, was traveling in the northbound lane on the PCH and veered into the southbound lane, colliding with a GMC suburban head-on traveling southbound. The driver of the Mercedes did sustain a fractured left femur.

The occupants of the Suburban, the driver being a man in his 70s and woman sitting passenger in her 60s, only sustained minor cuts, according to Norling. The driver did not get transported.

And yet another accident at Temescal and PCH today. What's going on? Why do people STILL think PCH is a freeway? Lets turn it into an Autobahn and drive 160 mph. Oh why not. Stupidity and rudeness reigns supreme among the drivers in the Palisades.
