No charges were filed against a Santa Paula man involved in a solo vehicle crash on Highway 150 in Upper Ojai during the early morning hours of March 5.
The crash at approximately 4:29 a.m. was reported as a single vehicle approximately 100 feet over the side of the Dennison Grade.
Although the vehicle β€” a 2000 Toyota Echo β€” was found, a search did not locate a driver.
β€œThe 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.
The vehicle was recovered and impounded.
