Head-on crash kills man in 20s

MALIBU -- A man, possibly in his 20s, was killed Saturday in a two-vehicle, head-on crash in Malibu Canyon that snarled traffic throughout the Santa Monica Mountains, California Highway Patrol officers said.

The crash on Malibu Canyon Road, just south of Piuma Road, was reported about 6:30 a.m., said CHP Officer David Porter.

At least one of the vehicles overturned as a result of the crash. Two people were flown by helicopter to UCLA Medical Center with undisclosed injuries as well.

The name of the dead man had not been released by late Saturday.

The road between Calabasas and Malibu was closed from 7 a.m. until about 12:30 p.m., delaying hundreds of people heading to a commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the "M*A*S*H" television show where the series was filmed in nearby Malibu Creek State Park.

Because of the road closure, "M*A*S*H" fans and regular beach traffic backed up on Las Virgenes Road, Kanan-Dume Road and Topanga Canyon Boulevard, deputies and CHP officers said.
