Hey, if he wanted to commit suicide, that was the wrong
choice of cliff pal, even the rocks are fluffy, the
ramp path is flat and the sand makes a good flying object
stopping device. Get mental help or try Torrey Pines next
time.

You got to wonder if repeated concussions played a role in this bizarre conduct. Not an excuse but a contributing factor. I lived in New England when he was playing, he seemed cool and well spoken during interviews.

Any body check if he was in a Toyota? A victim of the recal, maybe that's what happened.

This mf need some help bad. He really need to be put into a mental hospital, instead of a regular hospital! Why in the world would this mf drive his SUV over a cliff because his girlfriend, friend, whoever she is called the police on him for hitting her, and he had to spend time locked up in jail. What he don't want to be embarrass by his teammates cause of what happened, want his teammates and everybody else to feel sorry for him? If he is stressed, depressed, on drugs, drinking, etc., he need to really get some help, immediately, quick!

Junior botched a suicide attempt. BFD. So what? He'll get counseling for beating up his chickie and then probably kill her. O.J., part deux!

I know exactly where this is. Driven this section of road many times. The embankment is very close to the road. Also, fog/mist often sits in this area at night. He was very lucky. It looks like the tide wasn't very high either. You can see the tide line in the picture (the area where the seaweed sits).

The crash happened just north of South Carlsbad State Beach, across the highway from the mobile home park of Carlsbad Blvd (101). It is just south of Palomar Airport Road. About 10-15 mins south of Oceanside at the south end of Carlsbad. Again, fog often settles in this area at night.
