Officials still aren't sure when the crash took place. It remains unclear whether they were in the vehicle during the incident, and police have not yet found any eye witnesses.
Information pulled from the vehicle's software shows it was stopped at a flat, dirt pull-off area before it sped off the steep rocky face and plunged 100 feet, said Capt. Greg Baarts with the California Highway Patrol Northern Division.
"At this point in our investigation, that is the direction we are going", Baarts said.
Investigators said there was no evidence the auto collided with the embankment as it "traversed towards the tidal zone below".
Authorities say the speedometer in Jennifer and Sara Hart's vehicle was "pinned" at 90 miles per hour before it plunged off a cliff and crashed into the ocean below, killing the couple and three of their adoptive children.
