Literally 500 metres from my home. Yesterday morning, under heavy rain conditions, the driver of this Toyota Mark II spun and fell off a mountainside. Luckily for him, he only fell 20 metres and was caught by the trees. He survived, albeit with some nasty injuries.

Pity about the car too - RWD, manual Toyota. The Mark II is already a rare car in HK, to have it in a manual transmission is even rarer.

Here you can see how it happened. As the driver descended the flyover, gathering speed, he’s suddenly confronted with a very sharp chicane. I suspect the rain was very heavy indeed, because he managed to spin off even with traction control and ABS to help him.
