A fatal traffic incident claimed the life of an individual on Wednesday evening in Malibu, California. The accident occurred around 5:30 p.m. when a vehicle lost control and plummeted over a cliffside at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Malibu Canyon Road. This information was provided by the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The car descended about 150 feet from the roadway, crashing into a heavily wooded area and came to rest on its side. Rescue teams responded to the scene, but the driver, who was alone in the vehicle, did not survive the impact. The identity of the deceased has yet to be disclosed as of the latest reports.

Law enforcement from the Lost Hills Sheriff Station indicated that a section of Malibu Canyon Road was temporarily closed for both recovery efforts and preliminary investigations.
