Two Deer Harbor men escaped serious injury early Sunday morning, June 31, when their car left Channel Road and travelled down the embankment and landed upside down in the waters of Deer Harbor.

According to a press release from San Juan County Sheriff Rob Nou, both men were rescued by citizens who heard the crash. The passenger was airlifted to a mainland hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The two men were properly restrained with safety belts.

Alcohol or other drugs are not believed to be a contributing factor in the crash, said Nou.
