Crews are working to rescue two people from a vehicle that went over an embankment between Interstate 705 and Interstate 5, according to Tacoma Fire.

It appears the car was driving on I-705, heading to southbound I-5, when it went over the embankment, according to Tacoma Fire. Crews were called to the scene at 9 p.m.

Other patients were able to remove themselves from the vehicle and walk out, according to Tacoma Fire, but it wasn’t clear how many.
