A motorist body was found lying outside his vehicle near Sir Lowry’s Pass on Wednesday.

It is not known what happened, but a silver Toyota hit the opposite barrier, flipped over the railing and rolled about 100m down the mountain.

The damage to the railing was small and the car had landed so far down the mountain that it was barely visible from the road.

Police received a call from a passing motorist who spotted the vehicle.

Another man , a passenger in the car also sustained injuries. He was found almost 22 hours later, walking 200 metres away from the accident scene and trying to find help.

The two men had been driving from Gordon’s Bay towards Grabouw when the incident occurred, says Police spokesperson Billy Jones.

“Their names will be released at a later stage,” says Jones.

Police have opened an inquest docket into how the accident took place.
