Three people are lucky to be alive today following a spectacular car accident on the “platina” brige. The accident occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Apparently the driver lost control of the vehicle and hit the retaining wall.

The vehicle overturned and came within inches of falling into Virilla river below, a drop of a few hundred metres straight down.

The steel side mesh past the retaining wall held the vehicle in place. The passengers who were able to walk away from the accident with minor blows and pretty shook, probably counting their blessings.
