SUV plunges down 30-foot San Pedro cliff, injuring driver

by City News Service

A 33-year-old man sustained non-life threatening injuries Monday when his SUV plunged down a 30-foot San Pedro cliff onto a rocky beach, authorities said.

It was reported at 3:09 a.m. at 4102 South Pacific Ave., Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

The SUV “struck a curb, breached a guard rail and penetrated a fence, before tumbling down a 30-foot cliff, on to a rocky beach below,” Humphrey said. The driver who was in the SUV alone got himself out of the vehicle but could not climb back up the cliff.

” As LAFD arrived by land and sea, the man was found swimming in the Pacific Ocean,” he said. “An LAFD rescue diver assisted him aboard a fireboat, providing medical care for the man’s non-life threatening injuries.”

The fireboat took the injured man to a dock in the Fort MacArthur area where awaiting paramedics took him to a nearby trauma center in fair condition, Humphrey said.
