Plunge driver safe

A WOMAN driver is counting her lucky stars after walking away unhurt from an accident at Coramba on Saturday evening.

The woman was driving along a muddy and slippery Bennetts Road west of the village about 5pm on Saturday when she lost control and her car plunged about five metres down an embankment.

Her vehicle ended up mostly hidden by dense bush but she managed to get out and clamber up the muddy embankment.

Police, ambulance and SES volunteers attended the scene, however the woman was not injured

Tow truck operators were amazed at the low level of damage to the two-door Ford Festiva.

They said had it travelled only a few more metres the outcome of the accident could have been much more serious as it would have plummeted over an 80-metre sheer drop.
