Authorities are investigating the circumstances behind a fatal car crash on Highway 1 north of Pomponio State Beach. While the crash was reported about noon today, it could have occurred overnight, according to the California Highway Patrol.

In a series of tweets the CHP says an unidentified Caucasian man was killed in the crash. He was driving a white Ford F-150 pickup truck that is registered to a Half Moon Bay owner.

“It appears the Ford was traveling southbound on (Highway 1) when for unknown reasons it left the roadway and traveled (through) approximately 200 feet of foliage prior to going down the embankment and coming to rest on the beach,” according to a CHP tweet.

Another tweet says the driver did not appear to be wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected from the crash. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene today.
