Firefighters arriving to this call Thursday morning found a car up on wires - literally.

The driver ran off the road on North Lake Wohlford Road in Valley Center at 9:40 a.m. It was a one-vehicle accident at a turn in the road. When the driver went off the road he had no where to go but up the guide lines used to stabilize power poles, according to Nick Schuler Cal Fire spokesperson.

Firefighters checked in with the driver who was not injured and sitting tight inside the car. They then used a boom style tow truck to keep the vehicle stabilized while they got the 59-year old driver out safely.

The entire rescue took about 45 minutes but no doubt the crews will be talking about this one for awhile.
