CASCADE - A Smithsburg-area man was charged with driving under the influence Wednesday after he drove his pickup truck off a cliff near High Rock, according to Maryland State Police.
Police said they found Travis Blickenstaff, 25, about 80 feet below the cliff, trapped inside an overturned 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck at 6:37 a.m.
Blickenstaff, of the 2200 block of Jugtown Road, was pulled from the truck and taken by ambulance to Washington County Hospital, where a hospital spokeswoman said he was in good condition Wednesday night.
State Police Sgt. S. Wallace said police found no skid marks at the crash site. Police could not determine how fast Blickenstaff was driving, but Wallace said she suspects he was not going very fast because of the winding roads that lead up to the cliff that serves as a launch site for hang gliders.
