Three people died and two others were injured in a head-on crash Wednesday night near Point Mugu, forcing the closure of both directions of Pacific Coast Highway.

PCH was expected to be closed for several hours, officials said.

The two vehicles collided about 8:20 p.m. in the southbound lanes of PCH, just south of Mugu Rock, according to the California Highway Patrol. The area is a remote stretch of the scenic roadway along the coast between Oxnard and Malibu.

The three people were pronounced dead at the scene. Two others were transported for medical treatment, the CHP said.
