A driver was found dead by search and rescue crews on Feb. 9 after his vehicle veered off the roadway and down a steep wooded embankment in Mill Valley, according to the Marin County Sheriff's Office.

The man was identified Feb. 10 as 68-year-old Thomas Miles Meadoff of Mill Valley, according to the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division.

Preliminary information indicates Meadoff was the driver and solo occupant of the motor vehicle when it exited the roadway of Greenwood Way and overturned down the hillside toward Woodbine Drive where it came to rest.

A rescue team searched the heavily wooded hillside and found Meadoff  deceased further down the embankment, according to Pittman.

"At this time an investigation by the Mill Valley Police Department and the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division is underway into the circumstances of the collision and subsequent death of Meadoff," Lt. Keith Boyd wrote in a release.

The investigation into the cause, manner and circumstances of the death are ongoing. No further information regarding the investigation was released at this time.

At about 10:30 a.m. the Marin County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team was called upon by Mill Valley police and fire crews to assist in locating the driver of a black Jeep Cherokee that had traveled about 50 feet down an embankment in the 100 block of Greenwood Way, Lt. Doug Pittman said.

The Marin County Coroner's Office and the Mill Valley Police Department are investigating the cause of the incident.
