William Haddad of Freeway Towing climbs up a cable attached to a Nissan truck on Wednesday that went off the side at Rush Canyon Road near Sierra Highway in Acton.

 

Tow trucks pulled a pickup truck from the bottom of a 300-foot ravine in Canyon Country on Wednesday, a forestry official said.

Shortly before 11 a.m., officers with the California Highway Patrol received a report of a red Nissan pickup truck at the bottom of a ravine about 300 to 400 feet deep on Rush Canyon Road north of Sierra Highway, a spokeswoman for the CHP Newhall Station said.

No person was in the vehicle, said Nathan Judy, spokesman for the Angeles National Forest.

“There’s a vehicle over the side,” Judy said. “It’s an older vehicle and it appears to have been there for a while.”

Two tow trucks, at least one of them equipped with winch capable of pulling the car from the ravine, were called to the scene.

“It appears to have been an abandoned vehicle,” a CHP officer said late Wednesday.
