      The driver is very lucky. Now how are they going to retrieve the truck without it falling all the way down? They better block off down below just in case.

    Glas to hear driver was unharmed, but an expensive accident for somebody. Will there be an investigation to determine if this was operator error, poor brakes, or both.

    I am always blown away at the skills of the BVI drivers of those "large trucks/cement trucks " in those mountain roads. Their driving skills are outstanding, even though some of them drive like they are "crazy"
