Firefighters sent this photo of a car that drove off an embankment in the Morningside area Sunday morning.

A car drove over a seawall at about 11 a.m. Sunday in the Morningside area, falling about 30 feet before landing on its roof.

Firefighters said they received a call Sunday about a vehicle that had gone over the seawall in the Morningside section of the city.

The first arriving crews found a vehicle at the bottom of the seawall, which was about a 30-foot drop, and it was on its roof with one person still inside.

Once reaching the vehicle, Fire Department personnel checked the driver for injuries and then began a complicated removal due to the person being upside down and wearing a seatbelt. The driver, who was conscious and alert, was safely removed and reevaluated for any injuries, then carried up to the awaiting ambulance and transported to Yale – New Haven Hospital for further medical evaluation.

All Fire Department personnel were cleared from the scene at 12:55pm.
