A motorist backing out of a steep driveway in Del Mar Heights became trapped Monday afternoon when his car rolled over an embankment and came to rest upside-down in a neighboring yard, according to fire officials.
San Diego Fire-Rescue Department personnel responded to a medical aid call about 2:15 p.m. in the 16000 block of Nob Avenue, then immediately called for a vehicle rescue response, according to Capt. Joe Amador.
The driver was backing out of the driveway when he took a wrong turn.
His identity and the extent of his injuries were not immediately released by fire officials, but he was conscious when taken to a local trauma center, Amador said.
No one else was injured.
