A motorcyclist collided with a garbage truck today in Malibu, resulting in the motorcyclist's death.
The accident happened at about 9:00 a.m. on Pacific Coast Highway at Rambla Vista. The motorcyclist struck a garbage truck, which was moving slowly and had its hazard lights on, according to Vivian May of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station. Both vehicles were traveling westbound.
After the accident, sheriff's department investigators interviewed the truck driver. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
