A 28-year-old Hant’s Harbour woman escaped from this vehicle and climbed to safety after her burnt orange Aveo plunged over a 110-foot embankment Saturday, Feb. 13. The accident occurred shortly after supper on the main (Lower Trinity South) highway between New Perlican and Winterton. The woman punched in more than two hours climbing up the embankment in an area known locally as the Big Gush, before reaching the main road on her own steam. Some of that time was spent sitting on the embankment crying out for help - cries, which could not be heard because of the remoteness of the area. The nose of the vehicle was actually in the salt water when the woman escaped, according to a spokeswoman for the town of New Perlican. Members of the New Perlican and Winterton Volunteer fire departments were on the scene, and the Winterton ambulance took the woman to the Carbonear General, where she was treated for non-lifethreatening injuries. The vehicle remained at the bottom of the cliff until midday Monday, Feb. 15, when a crane had to be brought in from Simms Garage in Carbonear to lift it onto a flatbed truck.
