CHP said a highway patrol officer arrived to the scene on Old Mill Road, west of Highway 17 near Los Gatos. The officer was responding to the call of a car hanging over a ditch. What he arrived to ended up being much worse.
Authorities said upon the officer's arrival, three occupants were still inside and were scared for their lives. CHP said in their post on social media that the officer was able to give them clear instructions on how to exit the vehicle.
The three occupants made it out of a precarious situation unharmed.
