SUV crashes into South Boulder Creek

ELDORADO SPRINGS - Around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Boulder County Sheriff's deputies were called to an area of Rattlesnake Gulch in Eldorado Canyon State Park on a report of a vehicle in South Boulder Creek.

When crews arrived, they found an unoccupied 2012 Honda SUV in the creek.

The Honda had traveled an estimated 100 feet down a steep embankment.
