Pleasanton Teacher and Her Mother Die after Car Goes Over Cliff at Bodega Bay
BODEGA BAY, CA (April 9, 2021) – Elizabeth Correia and her mother Maria Teixeira died after their car went over a steep coastal cliff in Bodega Bay Saturday morning, April 3.
The accident happened around 11:00 a.m. at the West Bodega Head Trail parking lot. Teixeira, a 64-year-old Dublin resident, was driving a silver Toyota RAV4 with his daughter Correia. As she entered the parking lot, the SUV continued to drive west without slowing down or stopping, hitting a log barrier at the edge of the cliff.
After hitting and moving the barrier, the Toyota continued before plunging over the cliff.

Correia, a 41-year-old Dublin resident, was a Pleasanton Unified School District teacher for 16 years, while Teixeira worked as lead custodian at Montevideo Elementary in San Ramon.
