MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (KABC) -- A driver who crashed off a bridge in Marina del Rey and drove into the water below was rescued by a good Samaritan on Wednesday morning, officials said.
The crash was reported shortly after 4:30 a.m. at the Pacific Avenue bridge near Fiji Way, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Firefighters arrived at the scene to find that the driver, a 28-year-old man, had been extricated from the truck with the help of a witness, a Fire Department spokesperson said. The man was transported to a hospital; whether he was seriously injured was unclear.
A team of divers entered the water in an effort to ensure that no other occupants of the vehicle were missing. A helicopter hovering overhead shined a light from above in the predawn darkness.
The cause of the crash was under investigation.
