A cargo truck was left dangling over a 100-meter cliff after its GPS sent it down a too-narrow mountain road in northern China on January 1.
Truck left dangling over 100-meter cliff
Amazing images of a truck that gets stuck in the middle of a road and with the cab hanging from a cliff, more than 100 meters high. The event occurred in China, after the driver followed the GPS indications and took a shortcut to reach his destination sooner.
The truck was too big for the road it was driving on, a narrow mountain road, so it was stuck there for three days until they managed to get it out.
The wheel slipped off the edge of the cliff
The driver followed the GPS directions without realizing where it was taking him. The road was narrow and not suitable for a vehicle of this size. As he was driving along, he realized that the road was narrowing even more and wanted to back up.
It was then that the front wheel of the truck slipped off the edge of the cliff. The cab was left dangling, although fortunately the driver and another passenger were able to get out of the vehicle unharmed.
Finally, the teams managed to lift the truck and reopen the road, located near the city of Changzhi, in the province of Shanxi, in northern China, which was closed to traffic for three days due to the incident.
