More rains pounded Los Angeles and Orange counties Sunday as a May storm moved south through Southern California, creating dangerous driving conditions for motorists.

One car flipped over onto its roof after the driver lost control on the Pacific Coast Highway in the Malibu area Sunday morning, video showed.

The driver was not injured, according to authorities.

The crash was likely due to a combination of slippery roads, wide-open morning streets and possibly, the vehicle's speed, Los Angeles Police Department officials said.

Authorities say wet roads could have also played a role in another crash on the southbound 405 Freeway near Bellflower that involved several vehicles and resulted in a slow down on the freeway.

LAPD officials asked motorists to be careful while driving in wet conditions, especially on open roads.

The National Weather Service said the rain is expected to continue through Monday with a slight chance of thunderstorms.

About 0.25 inches of rain are forecast along the coast and up to 0.50 inches inland.
