Seattle fire crews rescued a man who spent the night in his car after it ended up in a ravine in north Seattle.

Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said that firefighters used ropes to stabilize the car and cut the roof and the steering column to rescue the man.

“He had had bumps, scrapes and a black eye. He was transported to Harborview in stable condition, it’s amazing,” Moore said.

Moore said that rescue crews were notified about the crashed vehicle after a 911 call from a man who reported the car had crashed in a ravine on his property which is in the 2600 block of Northeast 120th Street. The caller told rescue crews that he found the car at 8:26 a.m. and that he was able to communicate with the man trapped inside.
