Oakland Fire Crews Rescue Two Men After Their 4×4 Plunges Down Grizzly Peak Cliff

OAKLAND (KRON) — Oakland firefighters rescued two young men after their vehicle plunged about 300 feet down a cliff Saturday morning, a fire department official said.

Battalion Chief Geoff Hunter said fire crews responded at 9:22 a.m. to a report of a vehicle over a cliff at Grizzly Peak Boulevard and Marlborough Terrace near the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve.

The department’s rescue team located a four-wheel drive vehicle, also known as a 4×4, and rappelled 300 feet down the cliff. Crews found two young men, who were able to walk up the hill with the help of the rescue team, Hunter said.

“Fortunately for them, they appeared to be in pretty good shape,” Hunter said.

The two unidentified men suffered only minor injuries

He said there was no hazard present from the car.
