Sequim man survives 5 days in car after driving down embankment

After he drove off the road on Wednesday, the man’s car hit a tree in a brushy area, blocking his doors and making the vehicle difficult to spot.

SEQUIM — Police say a 69-year-old man survived five nights trapped in his car before he was found down an embankment on the northern end of the Olympic Peninsula.

The Peninsula Daily News reports Richard Jones was found by a man walking his dog Monday off Sequim-Dungeness Way.

Clallam County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Randy Pieper says Jones had been missing since he left home Wednesday night to buy his wife a bottle of wine.

Jones told police he was driving home when lights from a car coming over a hill blinded him. He swerved, overcorrected and went off the road.
