A woman reported missing from Simi Valley was found inside her crashed SUV today about 50 feet down the side of a hillside north of Malibu and taken to a hospital with what were described as moderate injuries.
According to the sheriff’s department, a passerby heard a female voice coming from the vehicle and notified authorities.
Investigators determined that the woman is Jenifer Duron, 40, who was reported missing from the Simi Valley area, said Simi Valley police Cmdr. David Livingstone.
Duron was last seen leaving her home on Monday morning in her white 2014 Kia Sorento, reportedly en route to the beach.
Rescuers went to Latigo Canyon Road and Newton Motorway about 9:15 this morning, said county fire Inspector Randall Wright. Paramedics reached the SUV a short time later and began treating the woman, Wright said.
Crews carried her up the hillside in a rescue basket, and placed her in an ambulance for transport to a hospital, he said.
