    Driver in I-5 Crash Still Missing

    When the driver in a highway crash couldn’t be found Sunday, emergency crews searched on the ground and from the air for almost an hour.

    A pickup truck landed about 40 feet down an embankment along northbound Interstate 5 at the East Mission Bay onramp around 8:30 p.m.

    The vehicle landed on its side against a chain link fence.

    At first San Diego Fire Rescue crews thought the driver may have been trapped.

    But when they searched the area, they were not able to find anyone.

    Emergency personnel used a helicopter to search the area with heat-detecting equipment for more than hour before calling off the search.

    Officials said no one else was injured during the incident.
