Sheriff's deputies are investigating the death of a 13-year-old girl who was struck by a car in Malibu.Detectives said Emily Rose Shane was walking home from a friend's house along the 29000 block of Pacific Coast Highway when a driver in a Mitsubishi Lancer hit her.

Deputies arrested 26-year-old Sina Khankhanian at the scene and booked him for murder. Investigators believe Khankhanian may have intentionally crashed his car into power pole, causing it to overturn and hit the teen.

Homicide detectives have been assigned to the case but said they don't believe the suspect intentionally hit the girl.

Shane's death came 24 hours after a 43-year-old man was killed after his car was hit by another motorist who fell asleep at the wheel in Malibu.
