One person was killed and five others injured in a multi-vehicle car crash Sunday in Laguna Beach, authorities said.

The accident occurred on the Pacific Coast Highway at Irvine Cove Drive about 1:35 p.m. Police officers and fire personnel responded after receiving a report of a head-on collision, according to a press release issued by the Laguna Beach Police Department to KTLA.

A car, traveling on the northbound side of the highway, struck another vehicle. Police said it was initially a minor-fender-bender. The car then veered into the southbound lanes and struck two other vehicles.

One of the drivers of the four vehicles involved died. Coroner officials removed the deceased victim’s body, said the Laguna Beach Police Department in an interview with KTLA. Authorities corrected their earlier statement that said were five vehicles involved in the crash.

The victim’s body was transported to the Orange County coroner’s office for further examination, said Laguna Beach police Sgt. Eric Lee in an interview with KTLA.

The five other victims were all taken to local hospitals, Lee said in an interview with KTLA. The extent of their injuries and conditions were not immediately known.

Northbound Pacific Coast Highway was temporarily closed due to the car crash. It was reopened Sunday night. All southbound lanes remained closed for some time, but were expected to reopen by 11 p.m.

The cause of the car crash is still under investigation.

Blown Tire Could Have Caused Fatal Weekend Crash

Accidents are caused by a variety of factors. The right combination of factors could have deadly results, especially when you’re driving along PCH.

A preliminary investigation into a head-on crash that on Saturday killed one person, injured three others and forced the closure of PCH in Malibu suggests that a blown tire may have started the deadly chain of events.

The 19-year-old driver of a red Ford Explorer told investigators he lost control of the sport-utility vehicle after his right rear tire blew out.

The SUV crossed over into oncoming traffic where it crashed head on into a black Toyota 4Runner, which then spun out and collided with a Lexus.

The victim who died in the accident was a juvenile who had been a passenger in the Ford Explorer. Investigators said the victim and driver had been partying in the area the night before. It was not immediately known whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash, but investigators said they are looking into the possibility.

The crash was at 8:10 a.m. Saturday in an S-curve just east of the Los Angeles County fire battalion headquarters at Carbon Canyon Road. The vehicles came to rest at the western-most intersection of PCH and Rambla Pacifica, which intersects PCH twice.

PCH was reopened around 4 p.m. Saturday, several hours after the crash. The area was cordoned off for the death investigation and to clear wreckage from the road.

There are no other roads along that section of the Malibu coast, which caused massive traffic snarls.

Resident Karen Horner said she was driving back to her home along PCH when she hit the traffic. Authorities told her to park her car and walk home.

During the noon hour, PCH was closed to westbound through traffic at Topanga Canyon Boulevard, although westbound local traffic was allowed as far west as Las Flores Canyon Road.

Earlier in the day, both eastbound and westbound traffic had a firm closure – no vehicles allowed – between Las Flores Canyon and Carbon Canyon roads.

If you or a loved one were the victim of a car accident that was caused by negligence or some other form of reckless behavior, it is important that you contact a committed and dedicated personal injury lawyer to help you decide if you should file a lawsuit. A competent and reputable injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

Lindsay Lohan Doing Fine Following Car Accident

Troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan was involved in a car accident on her way to a movie set Friday morning.

The 25-year-old actress, who looks like she’s pushing 40, was driving in a rented Porsche Panamer along the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica when she collided with a big rig. She was headed to the set of “Liz & Dick” before she rear-ended the 18-wheeler.  Lohan’s assistant was riding in the passenger seat and was slightly injured in the car wreck. Lohan, her assistant and the driver of the other vehicle were taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.

The black Porsche Lohan was driving sustained the most damage on the passenger side. The window on the right side was shattered.

According to TMZ, which first broke news of the accident, Lohan claims that she’d been cut off by the truck driver. Now she claims that her brakes failed and that’s why she couldn’t stop in a timely manner when the other driver cut her off.

The truck driver on the receiving end of Lohan’s Porsche has hired a lawyer to represent him because he claims he was injured in the crash. He wants compensation for his pain and suffering.

The other driver said he went to see a doctor on Sunday, despite telling everyone that he was OK. On the advice of his lawyer, he did not discuss the nature of his injuries.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the truck driver also claims that Lohan’s representatives tried to bribe him, but he declined.

Surprisingly, Lohan, who has had her fair share of troubles in recent years, was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Lohan did not show any signs of intoxication and she was not cited for anything.

In 2006, Lohan was arrested twice for driving under the influence. Lohan continues to deal with a litany of legal troubles.

In the last several weeks, Lohan has been filming an Elizabeth Taylor biopic for Lifetime. Amid much criticism, Lohan was cast to play the role of the late iconic actress.

Like many celebrities with substance abuse problems, Lohan is an accident waiting to happen. Sadly, every time she gets behind the wheel, something terrible happens.  The same could be said about regular people with substance abuse problems.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident and you suspect alcohol or drug abuse, you should seek the legal advice of a personal injury attorney. Only a trained injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.
