Man who drove off cliff on Highway 1 remains in critical condition 

A man who drove off a cliff along the San Mateo County Coast on Saturday remained in critical condition Sunday afternoon, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

At about 3 p.m., units responded to a report of a vehicle that appeared to have crashed off state Highway 1 and plunged about 100 yards down near Pescadero State Beach, CHP Officer Eric Anderson said.

A man was airlifted from the wreckage and taken to a hospital where he remained in intensive care as of Sunday afternoon, CHP Officer Arturo Montiel said.

Portions of Highway 1 were blocked for more than three hours while emergency teams responded to clear and investigate the crash.

Northbound and southbound lanes were reopen to traffic by about 6:25 p.m., according to the CHP.

The crash remains under investigation.
