MALIBU (CNS) - A motorcyclist was killed and his passenger suffered major injuries when his bike crashed with a Volkswagen Jetta on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California Highway Patrol officers said Sunday.
The motorcyclist was identified Sunday as William J. O'Hara, 36 of Los Angeles, and his passenger was Stephanie Feng, 28, of Los Angeles, the CHP reported.
The crash was at about 3:35 p.m. Saturday on PCH at Leo Carrillo Beach Road, according to Dispatch Supervisor Bernard Peters of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The Jetta's driver attempted a U-turn, and drove into the path of an eastbound motorcycle travelling at an undisclosed speed. Photos from the scene indicated that the motorcycle was coming down a hill and around a curve, towards the Mulholland Highway intersection.
