    Two teenagers escaped serious injury Sunday morning after a vehicle went over a cliff off Grizzly Peak in the Oakland Hills, according to fire officials.

    The first report of the crash came in at 11:38 a.m. at Fish Ranch Road and Grizzly Peak Boulevard. Two teens, a male and a female, were inside the small SUV and survived with what are considered minor injuries.

    One of them was carried out and the other had to be airlifted out and transported to a hospital, according to the East Bay Regional Parks District fire officials, which aided Oakland firefighters and the CHP in the rescue.

    The vehicle careened about 250 feet down a steep cliff where the road turns sharply, officials said. It landed on its roof at the bottom of the ravine and was totaled.

    It wasn't immediately clear what caused the vehicle to go off the road.
