PACIFICA – One lane of Highway 1 was closed Wednesday after a vehicle went over a cliff near the Tom Lantos Tunnels, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash was reported at about 2:20 p.m. just south of the tunnels, said CHP spokesman Mark Andrews.
Andrews said a vehicle was traveling northbound on Highway 1 when it veered across the southbound lane, hit a berm and went over a cliff. The driver was ejected onto the cliff side and the vehicle landed on the beach below.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Andrews said investigators were probing why the vehicle may have swerved across the roadway.
The southbound lane of Highway 1 remained closed while crews work to remove the vehicle from the beach.
