A motorist survived a harrowing plunge of more than 100-foot down a ravine in Agua Dulce Sunday, according to law enforcement and fire officials.

Shortly before 2:30 p.m. Sunday, firefighters were dispatched to a precipice near the intersection of Davenport Road and Summit Knoll Road for reports of a car over the side and the possibility that someone was trapped inside.

Firefighters found a white Chevy Volt at the bottom of a ravine.

“A patient was extricated and paramedics were heading uphill,” said Fire Department Supervisor Melanie Flores.

The motorist was not seriously injured and was not taken to the hospital by paramedics waiting at the top of the ravine, a spokesman for the Department said late Sunday afternoon.

Firefighters advised tow truck operators to bring 300 feet of cable or chain in order to retrieve the damaged car.

“The car was still on its wheels,” a California Highway Patrol officer said at 5 p.m. “The motorist was not transported to the hospital.”
