El Cajon, CA -

Firefighters from Lakeside's Lake Jennings fire station (fs3) assisted units from El Cajon Fire on a rescue vehicle accident early on the morning of December 24, 2011. The crew from Engine 3 arrived just after 4:30 a.m. for a vehicle that left westbound Interstate 8 near Greenfield Dr. ending up in a concrete drainage ditch. Subsequent responding units were directed to access the scene through Circle RV Park on East Main Street. One vehicle occupant was extricated by firefighters. Despite the high-speed and obvious vehicle damage, both occupants appeared to have minor injuries. Other units attending this incident included B3, E8, M8, and T6. CHP is investigating the crash.

Vehicle sustained major damage.
