Los Angeles County coroner officials identified the 25-year-old La Mirada man whose car plunged 300 feet off a steep highway in Angeles National Forest.
The man, Andrew Searcy, was found dead inside the crumpled car by county sheriff's deputies about 8:15 a.m. Monday off Angeles Forest Highway near Mt. Gleason Road. He had been reported missing on Sunday.
An autopsy was pending, Assistant Chief L.A. County Coroner Ed Winter said.
Sheriff’s deputies from Norwalk used a helicopter to trace his route and found the crashed vehicle. Rescuers who were lowered down to the crash site confirmed his death.
