PACIFIC PALISADES—A piece of concrete caused a two-vehicle crash on Saturday, October 9. A sergeant told Canyon News that it happened “during the day,” at “around 11:50 a.m. or earlier, before noon.” The incident occurred on Temescal Canyon Road, which is along the Pacific Coast Highway.
According to the sergeant, a piece of concrete became loose from a private property located on a hill. A driver in an SUV saw it coming down, so the vehicle swerved and crashed with another car. One of the cars also “crashed into a kind of pole.” The SUV, then “rolled over.” The crash caused the pole to lean and the power went out.
After the car crash, the Department of Water & Power secured the pole. “There were no injuries at the time,” said the sergeant. One side of the PCH was closed while authorities investigated the crash.
For the time being, the case is being regarded as a civilian matter so it is being handled by the insurance company and the property owner. There was “nothing criminal determined” as the property owner, along with the driver’s insurance company, are paying for damages.
