Officials are searching for a vehicle that reportedly drove off a cliff near Grey Whale Cove on Monday.
San Mateo County fire officials told The Mercury News that at around 11 a.m., a man driving southbound on Highway 1 near the San Mateo County beach reported that he saw a dark-colored SUV traveling northbound speed off the cliff in front of him.
Fire department workers, Coast Guard, Cal Fire and California Highway Patrol began searching the area for any survivors or other evidence of the crash in the water. Vehicle parts were found, as well as tire tracks on the cliff, but it’s still unclear if those are related to the incident.
Waters near the cliff are 30 to 40 feet deep. This story will be updated as further information emerges.
