5 rescued from SUV dangling over San Diego freeway5 rescued from sport utility vehicle after crash leaves it dangling from San Diego freeway
SAN DIEGO (AP) ' Authorities have rescued five people, including a child, from an SUV that wound up dangling off the side of a San Diego freeway.
The California Highway Patrol says construction workers positioned a forklift Wednesday to keep the mangled SUV from falling then helped rescue four adults and a 9-year-old girl. One adult had major injuries.
The CHP says the Toyota Rav4 was struck by a car that made an illegal lane change on Interstate 805.
The SUV rolled over several times, slammed into the center divider and wound up partially dangling from a rail over a freeway construction zone 30 feet below.
However, all those inside were wearing seatbelts and authorities say that may have saved their lives.
