Just after 5:30 a.m. this morning a car containing four men plunged 60 feet down an embankment off eastbound I-580 between Seminary and Keller Avenues. The crash was reported by a nearby resident who heard it, and police and heavy-rescue crews responded, ultimately using three cables to hoist the vehicle back up to the roadway.

A couple of the men in the car appear to have sustained critical injuries, including one who was lifted up from the embankment in a basket stretcher. All four were transported to the hospital.

The cause of the crash is not known.
