Much Needed Safety Improvements Coming To PCH In Malibu

DeWayne Lawrence Coleman rapped under the name MC Supreme, but, to his family, he was a little brother and a father to a young girl. It was earlier this month, as Coleman was sitting in his car by the side of PCH in Malibu, that he was hit and killed by an alleged drunk driver.

He was the fourth person killed on PCH in the last five months, including the woman that died in the widely-publicized Bruce (now Kaitlyn) Jenner chain-reaction crash. "It hurts a lot. He was the heart and soul of our family," said one of his brothers, Danny Williams. We met, along with their attorney, near the crash site. Attorney Bobby Saadian angrily told me he thinks the crash could've been prevented if  PCH were safer and, he says, perhaps his lawsuit will force some changes that aren't already underway.

In fact, I interviewed Malibu Mayor John Sibert today too, right out on the busy highway, which on weekends and holidays is just bumper to bumper. He told me PCH improvements have been done and will continue to be done. On Monday, the City Council unanimously approved some $20 million worth of traffic signal synchronization, shoulder-widening, raised medians, and so forth. "The goal is to make PCH safer and less congested," Silbert said, noting this small town of some 13,000 gets 15 million sun-worshipping visitors a year.

Too late of course for ''MC Supreme'', who's family says they need help with money to bury him and have an internet fundraising campaign going at www.gofundme.com/mcsupreme.
