Three male occupants of a vehicle died in a crash on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard southeast of Point Reyes Station in west Marin County early Tuesday morning, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
The 2013 Toyota Corolla was heading west on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard east of Platform Bridge Road west of Samuel P. Taylor State Park around 12:15 a.m., CHP Officer Andrew Barclay said.
The Toyota crossed the eastbound traffic lane and went off the road where it struck a power pole and two trees at a high rate of speed, Barclay said.
A passerby who came upon the crash called 911. The CHP, Marin County Sheriff’s Office and Marin County Fire Department responded, Barclay said.
The three occupants were declared dead at the scene. Marin County Chief Deputy Coroner Darrell Harris said none of the three victims had identification on them, but one victim has been identified and his family is being contacted as of Tuesday morning.
Sir Francis Drake Boulevard was closed until about 6 a.m., and PG&E responded to repair the power pole support beam that was destroyed in the crash, Barclay said.
Investigators do not know if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash, Barclay said.
