One person was killed and another suffered major injuries in a multi-vehicle collision on state Highway 1 south of Pescadero Wednesday evening, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported at 6:58 p.m. in the vicinity of Highway 1 and Bean Hollow Road, near Lake Lucerne in unincorporated San Mateo County.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:12 p.m., according to CHP Officer Damian Cistaro.

A Sig-alert was issued for both directions of Highway 1 at 7:32 p.m., but personnel on scene had opened the roadway up to one-way traffic control by 10:19 p.m., Cistaro said.
