On September 20, 2018 a jury awarded $9,100,000 to a severely brain damaged bicyclist and found that the City of Los Angeles and State of California were responsible for failing to maintain a highway where the accident occurred. Since 1958 debris from a landslide has encroached onto the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in Pacific Palisades. Sand, gravel and rocks continued to accumulate over 60 years on the PCH as it crept closer to the white stripe. Maintenance workers admitted they avoid cleaning it up. Apparently, the bicyclist was struck by the side view mirror of a passing truck that took evasive maneuvers to avoid the debris. This verdict was noted to be one of the largest awards to an injured bicyclist in Los Angeles history.
