Cape Town – A 28-year-old woman is lucky to be alive after she lost control of her car near Llandudno, drove over a cliff and came to a stop about 70m below the road.

The front end of the car was still stuck between large boulders and the back end was sticking into the air when reporters arrived at the scene.

Camps Bay police spokesperson Constable Ricardo Davids said the woman had lost control of her car near the Oudekraal picnic area on the M6 and veered off the road.

She was travelling from Hout Bay to Camps Bay when the accident happened at about 09:20.

A police official on the scene said the woman crawled out of the back window of the blue Chevrolet Spark and crept up the steep hill to the road.

Metro emergency services spokesperson Keri Davids said the woman sustained scratches and bruises.

She was admitted to Cape Town Medi-Clinic.

A towing company dragged the car wreck back onto the road.
