SUV lands on roof in East County canyon

ALPINE, Calif. -- A vehicle rolled an estimated 50 feet into an Alpine canyon Wednesday, landing on its roof.

Cal Fire San Diego officials rushed to the scene, along eastbound Interstate 8 near Viejas Casino, shortly before 5 p.m.

The white Toyota 4Runner could be seen sitting on its roof in the canyon alongside the freeway, but rescuers discovered that the driver was able to escape the wreck and climb to safety on their own. Officials did not immediately report any serious injuries for that person.

The 4Runner appeared to be the only vehicle involved.
