A car went down a 200 foot hillside in the mountains south of Buttonwillow.It had Kern County Fire crews dragging one victim to safety in a Stokes basket with ropes. The accident happened just after 2:00 Monday afternoon on Elks Hills Road and the man suffered moderate injuries. A second man in the car was only slightly hurt. It has not been confirmed what caused the wreck but alcohol is not believed to be a factor but speed may have been.
