After climbing a steep off-road hill, the traveler failed to turn the steering wheel, and the vehicle fell off a 50-meter cliff.
After the incident, the woman survived, but doctors stated that she had fractured six vertebrae and pelvis, as well as internal bleeding and permanent nerve damage in the lower back.
