Falling off a cliff

There were dozens of witnesses who saw the incident while they were visiting the iconic overlook near the Bodega Bay’s Head Trail. The vehicle, a Toyota SUV, went down the cliff and landed upside down, Bodega Bay Fire Protection District’s Capt. Justin Fox said.

Fox said the firefighters who finally got to the car had reported the woman inside was already dead. Authorities have not released the identities of the victims of the accident. Officials were investigating the cause of the crash.

California Highway Patrol Office David de Rutte said several factors were being looked into, such as autopsy results, the car, and witness statements, the Associated Press reported.
