A car went off of a cliff in San Mateo County, California prompting authorities to close the southbound side of the highway indefinitely.
The California Highway Patrol blocked off the southbound side of the Highway 1 to allow emergence personnel to attend to the vehicle. It has yet to be reported what caused the vehicle to veer off the cliff and there is no timetable for its retrieval.
The status of the driver is uncertain but officials have not seen anyone get out or attempt to get out from the crash. The coroner is on the scene.
