(Newser) – A 26-year-old man spent two days trapped in his truck—injured and dealing with freezing temperatures—after careening 74 feet down a cliff, KTLA reports. According to the Los Angeles Times, the man went off the road in California's Angeles National Forest for unexplained reasons, flipping his truck, and ending up down the side of a cliff. He was reported missing two days ago, but the California Highway Patrol didn't receive a tip about the truck until early Wednesday, NBC Los Angeles reports. The unidentified man was removed from his truck and taken for medical care around 4am. He had severe injuries, including a fractured ankle and broken ribs, but was "awake and alert."
