COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A driver is in critical condition after their car plummeted off a mountain road on the southwest side of Colorado Springs Sunday afternoon.

Police say the driver was on Gold Camp Road when they went off the left side of the roadway and tumbled down the hill, car flipping over multiple times before finally coming to a stop near the bottom of the embankment. The driver was thrown from the car as it rolled down.

The driver was the only person in the car and was airlifted to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The rollover happened just past where the paved portion of Gold Camp Road ends and the dirt road begins. The area is a short distance from the first tunnel on Gold Camp Road.
