Los Angeles Fire Department rescue personnel transported three people to the hospital with injuries Sunday night following a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Temescal Canyon Road and the Pacific Coast Highway.
The accident occurred at approximately 4:59 p.m. and there were no entrapments, according to LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey. He said the LAPD West Traffic Division is handling the investigation.
LAPD Sgt. Kara Nightingale said a 1970s Mercedes Benz traveled northbound on the PCH, crossed the double yellow line and crashed into a GMC Suburban traveling southbound. Nightingale added the two people complained of pain and the driver of the Mercedes had a broken femur.
"We don't know if anyone was under the influence," she said.
The accident remains under investigation.
Traffic on the PCH came to a stop during the incident. The Department of Transportation closed the southbound lanes for more than 30 minutes to clear the scene and the lanes.
