Woman killed in car crash over cliff ID'd

A woman killed in a car crash over a cliff Monday morning off of state Highway 1 has been identified as 46-year-old Susan Brown, according to the Santa Cruz County coroner's office.

Brown, a Santa Cruz resident, was driving a 2013 Subaru on northbound Highway 1 north of Swanton Road around 11:15 a.m., California Highway Patrol officials said.

She drove the vehicle off the roadway, went down a sheer cliff and fell several hundred feet before it landed on its roof at a beach, according to the CHP.

Investigators have not determined if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash and are awaiting toxicology results, CHP officials said.
