We're told the retired NFL superstar sustained injuries in the wreck -- cops are on scene. TMZ obtained these photos of Seau's Cadillac Escalade which landed at the bottom of a cliff several feet from the beach.

Must have been a slow day for celebrity headlines. You call this a cliff? It looks more like a glorified sand dune. Of course he wasn't trying to commit suicide... driving a full size SUV into the sand a few feet below. He's probably taken much harder hits playing football.

Sunset Cliffs would have been the better choice, Seau!

The real tragedy in this is that the cliff was not high enough and he did not have five or six of his friends with him!

Tire tracks are perpindicular to the cliff. If you drift off to sleep you would arch to the right over the cliff from the road. I know Carlsbad and the spot on 101 near Carlsbad Blvd.
