Pacific Coast Highway reopened in Malibu on Saturday afternoon after a deadly crash led to an hours-long closure.

The accident happened just after 8 a.m. on an S-curve near Rambla Pacifico Street.

The sheriff's department says a southbound vehicle crossed into opposing lanes, causing a violent crash. One of the cars went spinning and hit a third car.

All three cars were within the speed limit; speed was not a factor in the crash.
