Drive off a cliff and survive, then get to see a helicopter tow your truck:
The Sea Cliff Bridge sounds like the worst possible thing to drive off, but apparently two Australian teens managed to walk away after their Toyota Hilux went smashing through a guardrail at the end of November.
The 17-year-old driver lost control of the truck, crossed the road into oncoming traffic, smashed through a guardrail and only stopped short of the ocean because the vehicle was caught by trees. The 18-year-old passenger used a knife to cut the boys free and they were able to climb up the cliff to the road to flag down help, 9News reported last month.
“The use of a helicopter to retrieve the vehicle meant there was no impact to road users and the whole operation took around 10 minutes,” reports the Illawarra Mercury.
It remains unclear as to who footed what must have been a tremendous “towing fee” to get the truck back, but all I really want to know is if the truck started again.
