Person found dead in crashed vehicle near Creston

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.

Additional details on the crash haven't been released, but more information on what happened is expected Friday afternoon.
