Two people died in Malibu today, and a firefighter broke his ankle. Kanan Dume Road was temporarily closed as was a piece of PCH.
Nope. A truck driver going 70 on Kanan Dume Road, which is closed to trucks, went right through the red at PCH collided with a car and killed the driver instantly, hit a firefighter’s car, breaking the firefighter’s ankle and trapping him in the vehicle (someone else on the scene pulled him out before the vehicle burst into flames). The truck then crashed, killing the driver and starting a brush fire (sigh), which was subsequently extinguished. (Details at KTLA, link courtesy Here in Malibu.)
So here’s my PSA folks: Don’t be a dick. Even if you’re normally a complete wanker, try to keep it in check until we are not in a state of emergency anymore. Jesus. People never cease to amaze me. (I would have posted a picture, but when you search for “selfish prick” in Flickr Creative Commons, nothing comes up. Alas.)
