Four people were rescued late Thursday after a vehicle went over the side of the road and slid 250 feet down an embankment in the Angeles National Forest, a Los Angeles County fire dispatcher said.

The vehicle went over the side of Glendora Ridge Road,  west of Mount Baldy Road about 8:30 p.m., said fire dispatch supervisor Andre Gougis.

Three people inside the vehicle were hurt. A fourth person who saw the accident and tried to help the victims had to be rescued as well, Gougis said.
