Mini Cooper Stolen Before Landing Down Yerba Buena Island Cliff: SF Fire

An empty car that was reported stolen out of Berkeley was found on the rocks below a cliff at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Island on Tuesday, according to a fire department spokeswoman.

A citizen reported white Mini Cooper with a black roof at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday near the lighthouse on the southeast tip of the island, San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said. When crews got there, they found the ca was empty.

Talmadge said a car thief might have been responsible for abandoning the car.
