One person was found dead Friday in a one-car wreck off Highway 41 between Shandon and Creston, according to the CHP.
A body was found in a vehicle down an embankment off the highway just north of Yosemite Place, officials said.
"The car appears to have been down there possibly a little while," CHP Officer Bill Irons said, noting they were notified of it around 10:30 a.m.
Officials believe only one person was involved in the crash, he added, but the investigation is still preliminary.
