PALOS VERDES (CBSLA.com) — A man was hospitalized Friday after he drove his car over a cliff and it landed in the ocean off Palos Verdes.
The accident was reported around 2 a.m. in the 1300 block of Paseo del Mar, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.
Rescuers found the 19-year-old driver in the partially submerged car, about 300 feet below the cliff.
“It was well damaged and he was apparently trapped inside the vehicle with water rushing in,” Cpt. Don Tianaka said.
