APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. (AP) - A man whose car went over an Apache Junction cliff near Tortilla Flat is alive after hiking to safety.

Authorities say the man was driving Wednesday night on State Road 88 when he left the roadway near Fish Creek and his vehicle plunged about 300 feet.

The man stayed in his car on Thursday thinking he would be found.

On Friday morning, he exited his vehicle and hiked toward the road.

The man walked what he estimated to be over two miles before a vehicle found him and then drove him to an area where businesses were located in the unincorporated Tortilla Flat community.

He was taken to a Mesa hospital, where he’s described as being in stable condition.

The man’s name and age haven’t been released.
