PLYMOUTH, Mass. (WHDH) – Crews responded after a car went flying off a cliff into some woods below in Plymouth.

Firefighters raced to hoist a car teetering on a patch of thick vegetation about a third of the way down a steep bluff.

Neighbors say the driver appeared to be driving 10-15 miles per hour when he went through the gate. They said he seemed dazed, but conscious.

Witnesses said things would have been much worse if he had been going just a bit faster.

It’s unclear what caused the driver to lose control.
