Taxi drives over cliff on top Monte Vista hill

MONTE VISTA – A taxi driver had the scare of his life when his taxi van went over the cliff on top Monte Vista on Friday afternoon. Details as to the cause of the accident are still to be confirmed but it appears it was due to a brake failure.

A back hoe had to be called in to tow the vehicle from its precarious situation. Monte Vista, which overlooks the harbor at the entrance of Point Blanche, is known to have steep cliffs.

A big rock apparently prevented the van from crashing down the cliff completely.

More details to follow as soon as they become available.
