A driver has had a lucky escape after their car slid off the road and fell down an embankment in Quakers Hill. 

A Schofields Fire and Rescue spokesperson said emergency crews were called to the accident at about 6.55pm on Friday, March 10.

“Schofields Fire Rescue attended a three car accident on the corner of Hambeldon Road and Bali Drive in Quakers Hill,” the spokesperson said.

“Due to the collision one vehicle was forced up the gutter, across the footpath and through the fence of the Aldi Supermarket car park then off a four metre embankment and came to rest vertically in the garden of the Aldi.” Specialised heavy vehicle tow trucks were needed to pull the car back over the embankment.

“The driver was helped out of the car by shoppers and sustained minor injuries,” the emergency crew spokesperson said. 

The condition of the other two cars in the accident is unknown.
