Southern California Man Killed After Car Plunges from Highway Into Ocean

POINT MOGU, CA (April 8, 2019) - According to reporting from KTLA 5, a 29-year-old man from Diamond Bar, California was the victim of a deadly Pacific Coast Highway crash that occurred on Sunday evening. The wreck happened about one mile away from  Sycamore Cove Beach, near Deer Creek Road.

The California Highway Patrol told reporters that a 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser was headed northbound on the Pacific Coast Highway at approximately 7:30 PM.

A preliminary investigation suggests that the vehicle suddenly veered to the left into the southbound lane. It then rode on the dirt shoulder of the highway, before quickly going over the embankment and dropping into the Pacific Ocean.

Law enforcement officers and emergency service crews were reportedly at the site within minutes. Unfortunately, the 29-year-old driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. He was the lone victim in the crash, and his identity has not yet been released by authorities.
