Based on LAFD bulletin sent out Saturday morning:

A 21-year-old motorist was arrested Saturday on suspicion of felony drunk driving for allegedly triggering a crash that killed a 32-year-old woman and injured at least six other people.

Firefighters were called to the 17400 block of West Sunset Boulevard and Palisades Drive at 12:45 a.m. Saturday. They learned that a vehicle traveling east on Pacific Coast Highway slammed into a group of pedestrians and vehicles parked on the shoulder overlooking the beach.

A vehicle going south on PCH crashed into three vehicles parked on the southbound shoulder. The impact sent two of the three vehicles into the rocks, where three pedestrians were seated.

A 32-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene. One person was taken to a hospital in serious condition and five others were in fair to moderate condition.
