A man crossing Pacific Coast Highway in the dark was struck and killed Tuesday in Malibu.
The crash was reported just after 7 p.m. Tuesday on Pacific Coast Highway, according to Lt. Robert Wiard of the Lost Hills/Malibu Sheriff's Station. PCH was closed in both directions between Encinal Canyon and Mulholland Highway for several hours.
The man, who had been fishing at El Pescador Beach before trying to cross the road, was identified as Luis Adolfo Olmedo, City News Service reported.
Olmedo was struck by a westbound vehicle and he was pronounced dead at the scene, sheriff's Det. Justin Solomon said.
"It's dark out here, so I think that is an issue," Solomon said.
The motorist involved in the crash stopped at the scene and was not detained.
PCH was expected to be closed until as late as midnight. Westbound motorists were redirected to Encinal Canyon Road. Eastbound traffic was routed over Decker Canyon Road.
This is the second fatality on Pacific Coast Highway in the past three weeks. A tow truck driver was struck and killed by a hit and run driver on Feb. 11.
