Two people were found dead after a car plunged into the ocean at Pescadero State Beach, Cal Fire officials said Saturday morning.

The Coast Guard resumed the search for a third victim, Cal Fire officials said on social media Saturday.

It happened just before 9 p.m. Friday night.

According to CHP, the car went through an intersection on Highway 1 at Pescadero State Beach, when it kept going through the parking lot and off a cliff.

The names of the victims have not been officially released yet.

But earlier Saturday, family members who were at the crash site told NBC Bay Area one of the victims was Ipolito Anaya.

Elizabeth Anaya, the victim’s sister said they began to fear the worst when he didn't come home.

"I'm torn, my mom is torn. We were expecting him home," she said. "We're puzzled. We're very puzzled."

Anaya said the investigators wouldn't confirm who else was in the truck. But CHP officials said a child was another victim killed in the crash.

It's still unclear what caused the crash.

Police and fire agencies including Cal Fire San Mateo County, San Mateo County sheriff's deputies and California State Parks responded to the scene, according to officials.
