OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say one person was killed when a car flew off Pacific Coast Highway and plunged into the ocean in Southern California.

The California Highway Patrol says a dog was rescued from the submerged vehicle after the crash Tuesday evening near Mugu Rock in Ventura County.

All lanes of the PCH were closed while crews pulled the wrecked car out of the water near the surfline.

The person who was killed has not been identified.

Photos from the scene show the rescued dog wrapped in blankets in the back of a vehicle.
