Two escape serious injury after car tumbles 500 feet off San Gabriel Canyon Road

ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST — Two men climbed back to the roadway with only minor injuries early Saturday after their car plummeted 500 feet over the side of San Gabriel Canyon Road near the San Gabriel Reservoir, north of Glendora in the Angeles National Forest, authorities said.
The crash was believed to have occurred sometime between 2 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., when the men emerged on the roadway and flagged down a passing motorist for help, according to California Highway Patrol and Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials.
Though the vehicle ended up overturned and 500 feet over the side of San Gabriel Canyon Road, the two occupants were believed to have suffered only minor injuries, CHP Officer Brandon Curtiss said. No arrests were initially made in connection with the crash.
A sheriff’s search and rescue team returned to the scene later in the morning to confirm there were no additional victims and look into prospects for hoisting the vehicle back to the road, sheriff’s Lt. Andy Berg said.
Further details were not immediately available.
