Crash on Slaughterhouse Grade

On Saturday, December 12th at 7:45 AM, 3 companies, 1 ALS Ambulance, and a Battalion Chief from the Lakeside Fire District responded to the area of Slaughterhouse Canyon and State Highway 67 for a reported vehicle over the side.

On arrival crews met with a witness that was able to pinpoint the location where the vehicle had departed the roadway. At the time of the accident the area had received a recent rain event that had left the roadway wet.

Vehicle lies in a drainage off Highway 67

Crews located a vehicle near the top of the grade that had slid into a drainage next to the highway. Paramedics assessed a single occupant that had a complaint of pain.  The patient was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation of their injuries.
