The coroner’s office Monday identified a motorist who was killed when his vehicle went over a cliff in San Pedro and plummeted several hundred feet.

Rodney McClinton, 55, of Canoga Park, died at the scene of the crash, which was reported at 2:05 a.m. Sunday at 2002 W. Paseo Del Mar.

Firefighters responded on the ground, in the air and in the ocean to access the vehicle near White Point, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.

They discovered McClinton dead inside the vehicle and a cursory search of the area yielded no other victims, he said.

A news videographer at the scene said the vehicle broke through a barrier and plunged 300-400 feet.
