TUCSON –The roadway to Gates Pass was closed for several hours on Thursday.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department had to remove a car after that fell over a cliff on Monday.
The vehicle went off a mountain, west of the viewing area when the driver was taking a photograph. The driver was transported to the hospital, but the vehicle was not able to be removed at that time.
The driver is okay. No other injuries were reported.
