Moraga-Orinda Fire Protection District firefighters were called to the 18th hole at the Tilden Park Golf Course Thursday after a car rolled off the adjacent roadway and fell onto the course.
The incident was reported at 2:21 p.m. as witnesses reported a car crashing off Golf Course Drive and onto the golf course, three occupants reportedly fleeing the area while one person remained trapped inside the car with a suspected back injury.
Firefighters initiated a search of the area after witnesses reported that a second car may have been involved in the crash, and that possibly a child and a dog may also have been involved. Those reports could not be immediately confirmed, though some witnesses reported that another car may have picked up the occupants fleeing the scene.
A Contra Costa Fire Protection District helicopter landed at the golf course and transported the sole remaining victim to John Muir Hospital.
