Family from Nipomo wanted to play in the snow
A family from Nipomo that came to play in the snow in the Mt. Pinos area instead ended up getting snuck in the snow on Thursday.
They were rescued by a Kern County Sheriff’s deputy.
Deputies from the Taft substation and the search KCSO Search and Rescue Team were notified at 3:11 p.m. that the Crosley family’s car was stuck in the snow on Cerro Noroeste Road approximately 19 miles east of Highway 166.
The father, David Crosley, 28, was able to provide rescuers with GPS coordinates over the cell phone and that sped rescue efforts.
A deputy responded in a four-wheel drive vehicle.
He reached the family and helped get the car unstuck while Search and Rescue Team members stood by in four-wheel-drive vehicles and a snow cat to help out if necessary.
The family was safely escorted out to Highway 166 and returned home to Nipomo.
