Bus hangs in the balance
A LARGE crane was required to remove a bus which was dangling over a hill at Coolangatta.
The driver of the private coach, who was the only person on board, over- estimated the width of Hill Street while reversing, about 9pm DST on Wednesday.
Trevor Arbon, of Big Trev's Water Sports, watched the action unfold from the Greenmount Surf Club's balcony.
“He tried to turn from the top of the hill into the Greenmount Resort driveway,” Mr Arbon said.
“He had about three goes and the third time he reversed too far.
“Half the bus was over the side of the hill.”
Mr Arbon said a “massive crane-truck” came in and towed the bus back onto the road.
“The road was blocked in both directions for about an hour.”
