Woman dies after car goes off cliff but her three animals survive

Amazingly, a dog and two chickens inside the car escaped unharmed.

The chickens were picked up by the RSPCA but the dog, believed to be a jack russell, is still missing and residents are ask to looked out for it.

Emergency services rushed to the scene after her car rolled 20m down an embankment near the Cove Rd, just after 1.30pm on Monday, and flipped on to its roof.

Sadly, the woman died at the scene.

Cove Road was closed to all traffic as Major Crash investigators examined the scene. They will conduct an investigation into the circumstances that led to the fatal crash.
