Bay Area

A 20-year-old driver was rescued on Tuesday morning by the California Highway Patrol after the car plunged 450 feet off of a cliff in Napa County. 

Around 9:11 a.m., authorities arrived to find a car on Monticello Road near Dukes Curve. 

CHP H-32, Cal Fire and Napa County Fire Department, AMR, and CHP all responded to the incident.

A flight officer and paramedic were lowered from the CHP H-32 in order to provide medical assistance.

The 20-year-old woman was retrieved from the car and pulled up to the helicopter, according to authorities.

The woman was taken to the Queen of the Valley Hospital and remains in stable condition. 

Authorities say thanks to a bicyclist who saw the car go over the cliff they were informed immediately — Without the witness, officials say it is not known how long it would have taken for someone to find her.
