Two vehicles collided on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica on Saturday, killing one person and injuring nine.

The crash happened at 3:10 p.m. in the 1000 block of PCH near California Incline, Santa Monica Police Lt. Erika Aklufi told City News Service.

A Kia with six adults and two young children was traveling north on PCH and attempting to turn left onto Beach Lot Four North when it was struck by a southbound Toyota Camry with two adults, Aklufi said. The impact occurred in the rear passenger side door of the Kia.

The 10 occupants of both vehicles were taken by paramedics to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Westwood, he said. A passenger in the back of the Kia sustained serious leg injuries and died in hospital, he said. The rest of the injuries were “mostly minor”.

There was no description of the deceased victim.

Santa Monica Police closed PCH’s northbound lanes between blocks 900 and 1000 and the California Highway Patrol issued a SigAlert at 4:50 p.m., closing the westbound 10 Freeway at Fourth Street.
