In the early hours of Thursday morning the National Sea Rescue Institute were called to assist emergency services after a vehicle had plunged down Chapman’s peak.
According to Craig Lambinon NSRI spokesperson the police had requested their services to search in the vicinity of the incident whether people who may have been in the car were flung into the sea. This was part of a precautionary measure.
“The vehicle, according to reports, had allegedly spun out of control, hitting down a lamp post, rolling and smashing through a guard hut before rolling down the mountain side and coming to rest on rocks on the shores edge,” says Lambinon.
It was later confirmed the man was alone in the vehicle and did not require any medical assistance after being medically assessed.
“The matter is being dealt with by the SA Police Service.”
