Driver rescued after vehicle crashes 400 feet off 241 toll road

26 Feb

ORANGE – A woman was trapped in her vehicle for more than an hour after driving off the 241 toll road and down an embankment with heavy brush below, officials said.

The vehicle is stuck on a tree and partially suspended in the air near Santiago Canyon Road, said Officer Denise Quesada of the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported at about 6:40 a.m., Quesada said. Officials believe the woman was headed north on the 241 toll road when she lost control.

Firefighters were called to steady the vehicle and help get the driver out, she said.

The vehicle went down about 400 feet off the toll road, said Capt. Steve Concialdi of the Orange County Fire Authority.

After 8 a.m., the woman was rescued from the vehicle and taken from the ravine in a stretcher, Quesada said.

She was conscious and speaking to rescue crews, she said.
