SUV Hung off Embankment and Threatened House Last Night
About 7:55 last night, a driver wrecked his SUV off Machi Road in the Shelter Cove area. According to Cheryl Antony, spokesperson for Shelter Cove Fire Department, the vehicle was only stopped from rolling completely off the embankment and into a home by a fence.
“So we attached it to our FD vehicle to hold it in place until tow truck arrived,” she said. “The driver self-extricated with help of a passerby. And his dog was fine too.”
The California Highway Patrol took the driver. Antony said, “We called a friend to come and get the dog.”
The driver was arrested for a DUI, according to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department.
