Speed­mer­chant rolls car down Montgó

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

A speed­ing driver went fly­ing off a hair­pin bend across the top of the Montgó on Tues­day night and rolled his car down the moun­tain­side – but walked away from the wreck­age prac­ti­cally un­scathed.

Two young adults who wit­nessed the dra­matic plunge at around 21.30 from the Les Planes road be­tween Dé­nia and Jávea rushed to the driver's aid, ex­pect­ing to find a body.

But in­stead they saw a man on foot with a few cuts and bruises.

He had taken the sharp cor­ner at such high speed that the car had sailed clean off the road.

Fire­fight­ers had to cut down sev­eral trees to reach the car and scale down a sheer drop.
