TWO people are dead and another is missing after a car plunged off a cliff and into the ocean in northern California.

The 2012 Toyota Tacoma crossed over an intersection, through an adjacent parking lot and then fell into the water at Pescadero State Beach, around 30 miles east of San Jose.

The incident occurred just before 9pm on Friday night, California Highway Patrol told The US Sun.

A man in his 40s was found inside the vehicle on the driver's side and was pronounced dead at the scene, CHP said.

A second individual was found dead inside the vehicle on the passenger side.

The names of both individuals have not yet been released pending notification of the next-of-kin.

The vehicle was found overturned in the water.

CHP spokesman Art Montiel said road conditions at the time of the incident were quiet and weather was not an issue.
