MALIBU—Dwayne Lawrence Coleman, 47, died in a car accident allegedly caused by a drunk driver on Saturday, June 13 at around 6:20 a.m. on the Pacific Coast Highway.
Coleman, who was commonly known as rapper MC Supreme, became famous for his hit 90s song “Black in America.”
The Los Angeles County Sherriff’s department stated Coleman and a female passenger were in their parked Honda Civic on the highway’s shoulder near Correl Canyon Road when a GMC pickup truck hit their car and another parked vehicle. Coleman died on the scene and the passenger was taken to the hospital with injuries. The passengers in the other car did not suffer any injuries.
The driver, Philip Tores, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. He and the passenger in his car were not injured.
The City of Malibu will meet on June 22 to discuss the PCH Safety Report. The study shows research of the highway—it’s uses and the number of accidents—along with ways to prevent future accidents. The study found there have been 1000 major accidents on the PCH in the past three years.
