When contacted by PEOPLE, CHP was unable to provide details of the incident immediately.

Devil’s Slide is located near Pacifica on Highway 1, the famous coastal highway. This route runs almost the entire length of California’s Pacific coast and attracts visitors from all over the world.

But this cliff has been the site of many deaths over the last 50 years. At least nine people have died in the area since a tunnel was built to bypass the most dangerous sections of the road to make the area safer. San Francisco Chronicle.
