One Killed, Dog Rescued From Surf After Crash Off PCH in Ventura County

One person was killed when a car crashed off Pacific Coast Highway and into the ocean in Ventura County. 

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

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. Crash witnesses were taking care of the dog, Jake, early Wednesday.

The dog is "doing well," firefighters said.
