Police: High level of methamphetamine in system when Los Osos man drove off Pismo Beach cliff in July

Officials have concluded their investigation into what caused the death of a Los Osos man, who drove his truck off a Pismo Beach cliff in July.

Pismo Beach Police say toxicology results show Sean Ramirez had a high level of methamphetamine in his system when the July 9 accident occurred.

Police say the investigation shows Ramirez, 33, died from blunt force trauma after his pickup truck veered off the road north of Price Street and went over the cliff onto the beach just south of the Best Western Shelter Cove Lodge.

Police say prior to his truck going over the cliff, several 911 calls were made from people reporting Ramirez was driving erratically.

Pismo Beach Police Department investigators and San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office Detective Coroner investigators ruled the July incident accidental.

The contributing cause of the crash was due to driving under the influence, according to police, after they say the toxicology results showed the high level of methamphetamine.
