11:21am
A car driven by a 76 year male has run off Highway 101 and into a ravine near Estate Drive, Makai area.

Reports say the male is talking on his cell phone to 9-1-1 saying he’s got back pain. Firefighters will need a chain saw to clear branches so they can get him out.

The elderly driver was taken by ambulance to PCH in Newport to be checked out. It didn’t appear that he was seriously injured, other than suffering some lower back pain. Seat belts work!
