On Friday night, Sept. 3, about 7:30 p.m. a man in his late 30s fell over the edge of Angeles Crest Highway after he lost control of his motorcycle.
The man fell about 80 feet over the side at mile marker 50, said Deputy Jeff Martin.
Members of Montrose Search and Rescue repelled over the side of the cliff and secured the victim in a rescue basket. He was then taken by ambulance to a nearby open area where he was then transported by a Los Angeles County helicopter to Huntington Memorial Hospital.
On Monday about 10:30 a.m. a driver lost control of his motorcycle and slammed into a guardrail at Big Tujunga Road.
“It [appeared] he took the curve too fast and lost control,” said Deputy Jeff Martin. He broke his femur and was transported to a local hospital.
