      Very lucky to get out of that without injuries. Agree that road is OK to drive if you take care. Used to live up the other side at Berrilee. Ferry was always fun.

      Another one with steep hairpins is Galston Gorge.

        Yeah, that doesn't happen if you're doing 10Km/h round those hairpins!
        If I was able to negotiate a Toyota Coaster bus around those bends on a wet drizzly day with on-coming traffic, then what's so hard about keeping a Prada on the bitumen?

          Let's just keep in mind that the Prado left the road, but that does not necessarily mean that the Prado driver was at fault.

            I used this road many many years ago normally towing a boat, a shortcut from the western surburbs to the Sydney - Newcastle freeway.
            Even in the 80's this road has taken many a unwary driver, the issue is slow down and hopefully all will be good.
            Motorbikes loved this bit of road and it was not uncommon to come across them hooning.

              Even if he wasn't at fault, it does prove that the Proda driver wasn't driving defensively (not anticipating trouble)!

                I'm willing to bet there wouldn't be as much cabin intrusion if he had a cargo barrier, plus it would limit the amount of items flying around inside on a drop like that!

                  Hi Lance,
                  Yep. Definitely the Prado at fault for leaving the road. News report states it happened at 9pm. So Prado driver had the added warning of another vehicle approaching due to headlights. If indeed there was another vehicle. With a large, bright white, reinforced bullbar up front it's more the wonder the "other" vehicle didn't run off the road to avoid the threat.
