Authorities are investigating a solo-vehicle crash that left three people dead in San Mateo County.
The crash scene was discovered just before 8 a.m. Wednesday on State Route 35 (Skyline Boulevard), just south of Bear Gulch Road. Officials said the incident involving a Hyundai, which was occupied by three young males, happened overnight.
California Highway Patrol officials said the vehicle was traveling southbound on SR-35 when the Hyundai left the west side of the roadway and collided with a tree. The vehicle came to rest on its wheels about 50 feet down the embankment, according to the CHP.
All three occupants of the Hyundai suffered fatal injuries, police said.
SR-35 was closed in both directions during the investigation. It is not immediately known if drugs or alcohol placed a role in the crash.
An investigation is ongoing.
