Emergency crews responded to a report of a vehicle over the side of Highway 150 in Upper Ojai during the early morning hours of March 5.
Although the vehicle was found, a search did not locate a driver.
The crash, reported at 4:29 a.m. on the Dennison Grade, involved a single vehicle approximately 100 feet down the hillside.
“The call was upgraded to a technical rescue and we dispatched two of our search-and-rescue teams,” said Capt. Stan Ziegler of the Ventura County Fire Department (VCFD).
Rescue personnel found the vehicle empty, and a search of the area using thermal imaging failed to locate anyone, Ziegler said.
