Vehicle tumbles 40 feet in St. Paul crash, 2 hurt


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- St. Paul authorities say an SUV swerved to avoid another car and tumbled 40 feet down an embankment, leaving the driver and passenger with unspecified injuries.

Deputy fire Chief Matt Simpson says the two have been taken to a hospital. Their names and conditions weren't immediately released.

The crash happened just north of Hidden Falls Regional Park. Emergency crews responded to the scene Wednesday around 3:45 a.m.

Rescuers used guide ropes to rappel to the vehicle, which had landed on its wheels among some trees in a river bluff. It took them 20 to 30 minutes to remove the occupants through the vehicle's roof.

A St. Paul Pioneer Press report says police are investigating the crash.
