A driver was killed after their vehicle plunged several hundred feet off a cliffside in Palos Verdes Estates on Tuesday.

The car was found near 2100 Paseo Del Mar, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The vehicle lost control and fell about 300 feet off a cliff before crashing on the shoreline. Authorities received a report of the crash a little before 5 p.m.

The body of one person was pulled from the wreckage, authorities said. That person was the only occupant inside the vehicle and their identity has not been released.

Sky5 footage showed firefighters in wetsuits surrounding the overturned vehicle, struggling against the pounding waves.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
