Man plunges off steep cliff in car

Monday 30 Jun 2014 12:33 p.m.

A 38-year-old man is dead after his car plunged 40 metres down a steep cliff near Hanmer Springs.

Fire and ambulance crews were called to the scene south of Marble Point on State Highway 7 about 7am this morning to find a car lodged 30 to 40 metres down a bluff in a precarious position.

The vehicle was secured to a fire truck and police SUV with ropes while ambulance crews assessed the car's sole occupant, who was declared dead at the scene.

His name will be released once family members have been notified, police say.
