LOS GATOS — In Friday’s cliff rescue, three people who were driving in bad weather were deeply grateful for the help from California Highway Patrol officers, officials said.
according to social media director Outside the CHP Santa Cruz office, CHP officers respond to a call that a car was driven into an 800-block ditch on Old Mill Pond Road along a one-lane cliff at approximately 11:15 a.m. Did.
When officers arrived, he discovered that the car was “actually teetering on the side of a cliff, rather than teetering in a ditch.”
Within minutes, officers calmed and calmed down the three passengers inside the vehicle.
After carefully following the officer’s “clear and concise instructions on how to exit the vehicle safely,” the three exited safely and soundly.
Alongside images of the car balancing on the edge of a cliff with a lone rear tire, CHP warned residents to exercise caution when traveling.
“Again, this cannot be overemphasized. Only drive if necessary,” he concluded the post.
“If you must drive, slow down, be aware of your surroundings, and leave plenty of space between you and other vehicles.”
