Its most likely that there is a short or loose connection somewhere in the drivers side. What i would do is start from the connection and work your way down. I wouldnt even bother checking the fuse becuase if the fuse was blown they both would be out not just one.

The lowbeams have seperate fuses one for each side and a shared fuse for highbeams. Located under dash. Weird that the connection would be bad. With the locking mechanism and seals. I would check to see if anything has melted.
