Five Fatalities in Hwy 1 Accident
The release states that the driver drove the GMC “into a large dirt turnout on the west side of SR-1 and for unknown reasons allowed [the vehicle] to continue in a westerly directly off a large cliff.”
According to the CHP, the vehicle “fell down the cliff and overturned onto its roof…on a large rock where it came to rest facing in a southerly direction.”
All of the three juvenile passengers came out of the GMC and were located at the scene, according to the release. The two adult occupants had to be removed from the vehicle later.
“At this time, drugs or alcohol are not considered to be a factor in this collision,” reports the CHP.
Note: The earlier post failed to note the three juveniles were not wearing safety equipment such as seatbelts.Earlier Chapter: Multiple Fatalities After Car Crashes off Hwy 1
