Woman Survives Crash Off Big Sur Cliff And Lives To Tell Her Story.

Imagine that you're driving along from Oregon to Southern California on Highway 1 on your way to visit your sister. You're having the time of your life because you get to enjoy some of the loveliest scenery along the way. What could possibly go wrong? Then, something actually does go wrong.

Angela Hernandez was driving her Jeep along Highway 1 when an animal crossed the road. Panicked, she decided to do what most people would do, which is to swerve off the road in order to avoid hurting the poor defenseless creature. Unfortunately, this caused her to lose control of her vehicle. When she woke up, she was surprised to find that she was alive, but not by much, and there was no one around who could help her.

When Angela woke up, she found herself in her vehicle, which was at the base of the Big Sur cliff.

The accident happened around noon on July 6, and she didn't remember much after swerving off the road, including the fall, which was around 250 feet. "The only thing I really remember after that was waking up. I was still in my car and I could feel water rising over my knees."

She had miraculously survived the horrible fall, but she wasn't out of the woods just yet.

It was still daylight outside, but she was more concerned with the pain in her head. "My head hurt and when I touched it, I found blood on my hands." But that wasn't the only issue she had to deal with.
