A driver isn't hurt after plummeting nearly 150 feet off of Rim Rock drive on the Colorado National Monument.

The 17 year old driver was between the two tunnels on the monument at about 10:30 last night when he somehow slid down an extremely steep slope. Investigators are not releasing the driver's name because he's a minor.

This picture, snapped by the National Park Service, shows the car's path.
