MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a fugitive assaulted a bounty hunter who had been tracking him, setting off a pursuit that ended with the Pacific Coast Highway briefly being shut down Monday.

Malibu/Lost Hills deputies confirm the suspect, 33-year-old Tyler Moyle, assaulted a bail bondsman who had been trying to detain him.

Authorities say they spotted Moyle driving on the highway about 30 minutes later.

Moyle appeared to pull over after deputies performed a traffic stop but he suddenly made a U-turn and sped away. Soon after, authorities say Moyle collided with another car carrying a mother and her two children. The family was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Moyle was injured in the crash and hospitalized. He’s being held on several charges including suspicion of driving under the influence and battery.
