Emergency personnel headed out on U.S. Highway 199 just past Hiouchi on a report of a vehicle that went off the embankment Monday afternoon, but when they got there they found no one hurt, although a vehicle did go off the road.

A caller reported that a car had gone over the embankment and couldn't be seen at about 3:45 p.m. about a mile east of Hiouchi Hamlet.

The California Highway Patrol, the Gasquet Fire Department, Del Norte County Sheriff's Office and Search and Rescue personnel responded.
