Rescuers have located the victim of an accident that ended with a car at the bottom of a canyon near 8751 N. Valley Circle Blvd. near the west end of the Chatsworth Reservoir and Nature Preserve.

The driver, a female who was able to walk away from the car, was taken to a local trauma center with minor injuries, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
