Fourth of July Deadly Head-on Crash on PCH

MALIBU, Calif. (July 5, 2024) – Martin Okeke, 44, died and two others were injured in a Fourth of July car accident on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

The two-vehicle collision happened just after 11 p.m. on Thursday, July 4th, according to the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station and MyNewsLA.

Authorities responded to the 22000 block of Pacific Coast Highway, west of Carbon Canyon, police said.

A driver in a 2019 Mercedes Benz sedan travelling eastbound on Pacific Coast Highway reportedly crossed into the path of a 2020 Cadillac Escalade driven by Martin Okeke. The two vehicles collided head on and the driver from the Cadillac was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff-Coroner later identified the man on its website.

Meanwhile, the passenger in the Cadillac Escalade also had major injuries. Paramedics transported the passenger as well as the driver of the Mercedes Benz with serious injuries to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for treatment.

Authorities closed down all traffic lanes on Pacific Coast Highway in the area due to the crash and investigation.

The roadway did not fully reopen until the next morning at 8:30 a.m. on Friday.

The cause of the fatal Malibu car accident over the Fourth of July remains under investigation.

Witnesses are urged to contact the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station at 818-878-1808.
