Sports car plunged down hillside, 79-year-old female driver escaped death


Hong KongThe Porsche turned right and then hit the back of a van going downhill, turned right and then headed straight for the barrier, April 8.

Situation: The Porsche drove behind a dash cam along Island Road and entered the roundabout at Repulse Bay. The turn signal light is on to signal that the vehicle is turning right.

But right after that, the Porsche hit the back of a Mercedes van in the same direction that had just come down from the left ramp. The crash was loud as the sports model veered to the right, rushing towards the barrier.

The Porsche fell 10 meters down a hillside. The 79-year-old female driver was trapped in the car until the rescue team pulled her out. Fortunately, the victim only suffered minor injuries. This old lady is a retired doctor. Both drivers were tested for alcohol, but neither was in violation.

Skills to remember: When approaching a roundabout without signal lights, vehicles need to slow down and observe to give way according to the law. In the video, the Mercedes entered the roundabout before, so the driver did not stop to give way to the Porsche behind. The old woman driving a sports car was startled at the collision, so she plunged the car into the cliff.
