Elderly woman has lucky escape

Car leaves road after accident at Everlasting Bend

An elderly woman had a lucky escape yesterday (Thurs) after an accident just outside Laxey.

Her car left the road on the everlasting bend and rolled over before coming to rest by a hedge

Fire crews had to stabilise the vehicle before rescuing the driver who they say remained in good spirits despite her predicament.

They had to use a ladder as an improvised bridge to get her to safety.

Assistant Divisional Officer Geoff Quayle says her situation could easily have been much worse.
