New video Tuesday shows the moment a vehicle went off a cliff from Highway 1 just south of Devil's Slide on the San Mateo County coast on Monday.

The dashcam video shows a green vehicle cross the road and careen off the cliff over Gray Whale Cove State Beach.

Multiple agencies are investigating the incident that happened at about 11:15 a.m. Monday. The driver of the vehicle has not been found but vehicle parts were recovered in the water during the search, Cal Fire officials said.

It's unclear if the parts are connected to the incident.

U.S. Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer 3rd Class Taylor Bacon said a six-hour search for bodies was suspended late Monday afternoon because the water conditions in the area were dangerous and the probability of finding anyone still alive was outweighed by the risk to the crews that were searching for people.

Diaz said crews aren't searching the area on Tuesday because the conditions are still dangerous and are expected to remain dangerous on Wednesday.
