SF Man Survives After Driving Off Cliff

It was a dark and foggy night … when a 24 year old San Franciscan missed a turn on the notoriously twisty California Highway 1 and flew off the road at a place appropriately called Devil’s Slide. The Mazda sedan plunged 150 feet, but landed squarely on its wheels, and the man was unharmed save a bump on the head. The reason, said CHP Sergeant Trent Cross, is that “[h]e did what he was supposed to do, he wore his seat belt … If he hadn’t been wearing it, there is no doubt it would have been fatal.” He was able to call 911, and despite having to wait 45 minutes while search crews peered through the thick fog, he was hauled up from the bottom and is doing fine. So, just for the record, if you’re driving a twisty cliff road at 4 am in the thick fog, please be wear a seat belt just in case you happen to careen off the edge.
