MILL VALLEY (CBS SF) — A driver was found dead by search and rescue crews Sunday morning after his vehicle veered off the roadway and down a steep wooded embankment in Mill Valley, according to the Marin County Sheriff’s Office.

At about 10:30 a.m. the Marin County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team was called upon by Mill Valley police and fire crews to assist in locating the driver of a black Jeep Cherokee that had traveled about 50 feet down an embankment in the 100 block of Greenwood Way, Lt. Doug Pittman said.

The rescue team searched the heavily wooded hillside and found a man deceased further down the embankment, according to Pittman.

The Marin County Coroner’s Office and the Mill Valley Police Department are investigating the cause of the incident.
