A single-car crash on Highway 1 early Tuesday morning claimed the life of one San Mateo man and sent the passenger to the hospital.
The crash occurred at about 12:41 a.m. near the intersection of Spindrift Way in Half Moon Bay. San Mateo County Sheriff's officials say a 23-year-old driver lost control of his 1998 Nissan sedan and the car rolled over. The driver was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene, according to a Sheriff's release. A passenger, a second 23-year-old man from San Mateo, was taken to an area hospital with unknown injuries.
The cause of the accident has not yet been determined.
Highway 1 was closed until 4:25 a.m. as crews removed the wreckage and investigated the incident.
It is the third fatal accident on Highway 1 between the Devil's Slide tunnels and Half Moon Bay in little more than two weeks.
