Car teeters over ledge


A WOMAN reversing her car up a steep driveway in Frankston South may have panicked and hit the accelerator instead of the brake, causing her car to roll forward and teeter alarmingly over the edge of a deep drop, 1.20pm, Saturday 11 November.

The frightened woman called a friend who alerted 000 to the drama in Baden Powell Drive.

Emergency services, including Frankston CFA, SES, ambulance and police arrived to assist the middle-aged woman who was too frightened to attempt getting out of the Toyota car.

Sergeant Scott Bodycomb, of Rosebud police, said CFA crews used ropes to secure the car to the house to stop it toppling over the edge. The SES then winched it up to the road.

“At the end of the day the woman is safe and well and the emergency services crews all worked well together,” he said.
