Firefighters rescued a driver in La Jolla the night of Jan. 14 after his vehicle went off Coast Boulevard and down a cliff, officials said.

San Diego firefighters received calls around 5:30 p.m. of a vehicle that had gone off the road near Cave Street, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Battalion Chief Jeff Mitchell.

The vehicle landed on the rocks below the road near the coastline.

At about 8 p.m., Mitchell said firefighters had removed the driver from the vehicle and were working to get him back up the cliff. The San Diego Police Department posted on social media that the man had minor injuries and was taken to a hospital.
