A crash in the Florida Panhandle left the driver stuck at the bottom of a deep hole, officials said.
Two fire departments and EMS were called to an accident just before 9 p.m. on Oct. 24, according to a Facebook post from the City of Chattahoochee Fire Department.
They found a black pickup truck stuck in the woods with its airbags deployed, the fire department said, but the driver’s seat was empty.
Then a resident who lives nearby and had gotten to the crash scene before emergency personnel heard someone calling out from the woods, the fire department said.
Crews followed the sound of the yelling and discovered a hole, about 15 to 20 feet deep, the fire department said.
At the bottom of the hole was the truck’s driver, unable to escape and calling for help.
A ladder was dropped down into the hole and the driver was rescued with non-life-threatening injuries, the fire department said.
Chattahoochee is about 45 miles northwest of Tallahassee.
