A man who may have been involved in a hit-and-run accident had to be rescued from a drainage ditch in Fullerton Tuesday night.He's now in the hospital with a broken ankle.

Police don't know how he ended up at the bottom of the ditch. They think he was somehow involved in a nearby hit-and-run, although no one was hurt in that accident.

Fire crews used ropes and pulleys to get the man out. They say they've rescued lots of people from those ditches over the years.
