The California Highway Patrol on Monday morning responded to a person who was found dead in a vehicle down an embankment just outside St. Helena city limits.

It appears one person died in a solo vehicle crash on northbound Silverado Trail near Pratt Avenue but no further details were available, CHP Officer Vince Pompliano said.

A person called the CHP around 9:05 a.m. Monday to report seeing a vehicle leaning against a tree. The caller wanted to go down the embankment to see if it was the vehicle of a friend who was missing since Saturday, according to the CHP.

Silverado Trail at Pratt Avenue is closed for an extended period of time, and the vehicle has been towed up onto the roadway, the CHP said.
