Look at the picture above and you can see where this driverbroke through the guardrail, on the right side of the culvert, Where the people are standing on the road, pointing. The pick-up was travelling about 75 mph from right to left when it crashed through the guardrail. It flipped end-over-end bounced off and across the culvert outlet, and landed right side up on the left side of the culvert, Facing the opposite direction from which the driver was travelling. The 22-year-old driver and his 18-year-old passenger were unhurt except for minor cuts and bruises.

Very lucky to still be here. Just curious, you called it a pick-up instead of a ute. Are you a yank living in nsw?

Those photos have been doing the rounds now for many years, still look good though. Just goes to show how tough the truck is...

What's wrong with calling a Pickup a Pickup, it's larger than a Ute...ie Holden Falcon, etc,

To Doug,

Nothing wrong with calling it a pickup and nothing wrong with a yank. Was just curious because it's not a term used here too often.

not sure that the "toughness" of the truck has anything to do with not falling off that cliff either, divine intervention maybe? Good try though toffy.

Yes, an obviously doctored image. Either that or the road engineer had a wicked sense of humour.
