Authorities say data recovered from the wreckage of the SUV carrying a large family from Washington state shows the deadly crash may have been intentional.
The California Highway Patrol says the SUV carrying the family accelerated straight off a scenic California cliff.
A spokesman says the data shows the vehicle was stopped at a flat pull-off area before it sped off the steep rocky face.
Authorities don’t know exactly when the wreck took place. A passing motorist discovered the vehicle on March 26, three days after social service authorities in Washington state opened an investigation apparently prompted by a neighbor’s complaint that the children were being deprived of food.
