A motorist was rescued Thursday morning after his car went over the side of an embankment and down a ravine, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

About 8:40 a.m., officers with California Highway Patrol received calls from motorists that a black Nissan had gone over the side of an embankment on Bouquet Canyon Road, the spokesman said.

Initial reports received by the CHP indicated the crash involved two cars that collided head-on.

However, at least one car left the roadway and went down a ravine.

“We got a call about a traffic collision with person trapped at 8:44 a.m.,” the Fire Department spokesman said.

The collision and subsequent ravine plunge happened five miles north of Vasquez Canyon Road and one mile north of the Big Oaks Lodge and restaurant, he said.

The motorist was not injured, he added.

Tow truck operators equipped with cables and winches, as well as firefighters with the Angeles National Forest from the Texas Canyon Fire Station, were also called to the scene by the CHP.
