Who were the Pepperdine University students killed?
The crash occurred on October 18, 2023, at around 8:30 p.m. on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California.
Fraser Michael Bohm was driving a BMW west on the highway when he lost control of the vehicle and swerved off the road.
The area of the crash has since been described by local residents as “Dead Man’s Curve” because of the high amount of accidents.
“Every six months there’s another accident,” a woman who lives in the area told KTLA.
“There was one three months ago, there was one four months ago, and they are all within these five to six houses.”
The BMW collided with three parked vehicles, which were then hit by four women who were standing on the side of the road.
The four women were pronounced dead at the scene. They were all seniors at Pepperdine University and were identified as:
- Niamh Rolston
- Alyssa Goldstein
- Lindsey Gilstrap
- Katherine Daly
Fraser Michael Bohm suffered minor injuries in the crash and was taken to a local hospital.
He was later released from custody.
A spokesperson appeared to rule out street racing as playing a factor in the crash as no other car was involved.
Witnesses said that Bohm was unscathed after the incident and attempted to leave the scene until onlookers apprehended him.
A sheriff’s office spokesperson said that a DUI investigation is also taking place.
