Driver extricated after crash in SLO (Video)

San Luis Obispo firefighters extricated a driver trapped in a car following a crash Wednesday morning on northbound Highway 101 near Prado Road.

At about 4 a.m., a 911 caller reported the single car accident, according to the SLO Fire Department. It took firefighters approximately 33 minutes to extricate the driver, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle. 

The vehicle drove through a fence just north of the Prado Road off-ramp and landed about 30 feet off the roadway, according to the CHP. 

It is unclear what caused the car to go off the highway. But, fire officials reminded drivers in a tweet to watch their speed during the current weather conditions.
