MOUNT BALDY >> A 22-year-old man was rescued Wednesday morning after his vehicle went over the side of a Mount Baldy road about 6 p.m. Sunday, officials said.
“We were able to get the male out of the vehicle around 4 a.m., and he was flown out,” said Los Angeles County Dispatch Supervisor Michael Pittman.
The driver, Hunter Kittle, sustained major injuries according to a California Highway Patrol news release. News reports say he suffered broken bones. He was flown to USC Medical Center for treatment.
CHP officials called fire rescuers to the scene just before 3 a.m., after officers found the wreckage of Kittle’s Toyota 4Runner. The news release states a motorist flagged down a San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy about 12:56 a.m. to point out the possible crash.
“Kittle reportedly fell asleep and allowed the Toyota to veer of the roadway,” the news release states. “The Toyota then overturned and struck a tree,” trapping Kittle inside.
The vehicle came to a stop about 75 feet down Mount Baldy Road, said Pittman. The news release placed the vehicle near Mount Baldy Road, north of Shinn Road.
Rain and snow were still falling on the area the day authorities believe the vehicle lost control and went down the side of the winding road. It wasn’t clear if investigators believe the weather contributed to the crash, but alcohol or drugs are not suspected to be contributing factors.
The CHP is investigating the incident.
