Updated 5 p.m.: Emergency crews responded to a vehicle over the cliff north of Pescadero State Beach on Wednesday morning. The driver, a Modesto woman in her 30s, was killed in the crash.
California Highway Patrol spokesman Art Montiel said the unidentified woman was driving a GMC Yukon southbound on Highway 1 when she went over the cliff. Someone on the beach found the car at about 9 a.m. and called authorities. It wasn't clear when the crash occurred.
Montiel said the woman was apparently not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected from the impact. She was pronounced dead on the scene and the investigation is continuing.
It is the second time in as many days that emergency responders have had to pull a dead person from a single car crash that ended on a Coastside beach. On Tuesday, a passerby found a crashed pick-up truck on the beach near Pomponio State Beach.
