(FOX 11/ CNS) - An Irvine man was identified by the Orange County coroner's office today as the person killed in a four-vehicle crash that injured five others and shut down Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach.

The victim was identified as 29-year-old Erik Valencia, of Irvine. The coroner's press release on the Orange County Sheriff's website says Valencia "was a passenger in an out-of-control auto versus truck accident."

The crash happened at about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday on Pacific Coast Highway around Irvine Cove Drive, according to a police press release.

Laguna Beach police Sgt. Eric Lee said the five survivors were hospitalized with injuries ranging from minor to severe.

PCH was closed in both directions. It was fully reopened at 11:10 p.m., Lee said.

    Hell on earth, that's how some doctors describe Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa also known as E.B. It's a horrible genetic disease that Nicky Zahorcak was born with. A lot of his skin is raw, the slightest touch can cause blisters that quickly spread. He says, "Right now, all the bandages that you see everywhere even on my sides, they're all raw skin." His mother Silvia says very few people know about this rare condition and she wants to change that.
