wo sheriff’s squad cars crashed into each other on Pacific Coast Highway near Point Dume Sunday, and one deputy was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

A sergeant said the deputies were responding to an animal abuse call, and collided while at least one of them was making a U-turn.

The crash was at about 7:10 a.m. on Pacific Coast Highway west of Heathercliff Road, said a different sergeant, Brad Johnson, at the sheriff’s Malibu-Lost Hills station.

Traffic was directed around the wreck for three hours, but investigators cleared the crash scene after three hours.

The crash was on a downhill section of PCH, about 200 feet west of the signal at Heathercliff.
