Posted on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 3:42pm

A man is recovering from an incredible ordeal, in which he was stranded down an embankment in the Ventura County mountains for 17 hours, after crashing his motorcycle.

The accident happened Sunday afternoon, off of Highway 33, near Lockwood Valley, in northeastern Ventura County.

Neil Reynolds had been riding with friends, but parted with them, and was riding solo.

He plunged more than 50 feet down an embankment on Pine Mountain, and was trapped under his motorcycle.

When he failed to return home Sunday night, his wife called authorities.

Ventura County Sheriff’s Deputies, and a Sheriff’s Department helicopter started a search, and he was found around 8 a.m. Monday.

The 67-year-old Woodland Hills man was then flown to a hospital, where he’s recovering from his injuries.

There’s no word on what led to the accident.
