Just one week is left in a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed for a documentary aimed at finding solutions for Pacific Coast Highway safety.
Malibu teenager Emily Shane was struck by a driver on the side of Pacific Coast Highway in April 2010.
Her father, Michel Shane, launched a campaign on Kickstarter aimed at raising $35,000 to make a documentary about the dangerous highway. The campaign for the film, called "PCH: Probably. Cause. Harm.," is nearing the end of its 30 days.
As of Tuesday night, 72 people had raised $12,739, according to the Kickstarter page.
"My idea is we tell the story of PCH, of the problems, the deaths, the people that have been affected with it and then we will go interview people and try to find solutions," Shane said.
The city of Malibu, which is in the midst of a safety study on PCH, renamed Heathercliff Road as Emily Shane Way in her honor.
Since Emily's death, others have been struck and killed on PCH, including triathlete Marisela Echeverria and tow truck driver Ronald Carver, among others. Shane said he hopes the documentary will raise awareness and effect change so that no more families have to grieve.
"Maybe I can save one parent from going through with what I went through," Shane said. "That alone would be worth every dime."
