A motorist was rushed to hospital Tuesday night after a vehicle veered off the La Toc road and down a precipice.

Saint Lucia Fire Service spokeswoman, Stacy Joseph, says officers at Fire Service Headquarters responded after receiving a distress call at approximately 10:15 p.m. 

According to Joseph, at the scene emergency personnel found the vehicle resting on its roof.

She said the sole occupant, a male individual appearing unconscious, was lying on his back with his legs elevated.
