Man rescued after vehicle ends up in Wash. creek
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) – Rescuers in the south Seattle suburb of Federal Way have pulled a man from a vehicle that ran off a road, plunged down a ravine and wound up in a creek.
Television news footage showed firefighters orchestrating an elaborate rescue to haul the man up to medics late Friday afternoon. KIRO-TV reports the car’s occupant was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
The cause of the crash in the Peasley Canyon area near State Highway 18 is under investigation.
