Drove off cliff, and survived a week trapped on beach

This is a pretty amazing local news story and since it peripherally involves a car, I thought others here might be interested.

If that link is behind a San Luis Tribune paywall, you can find the same article via google, like I did here:

How does it reflect on Jeep that somehow their car ended driving off the road (not a positive attribute) but kept the driver alive off a 250 ft rocky cliff (a very positive attribute)?

She swerved to not hit a rabbit. Not sure how that reflects at all on Jeep. Keeping someone alive on a wreak like that is luck of the fall and landing. The Jeep shoukd be analyzed like a plane crash to see how it happened. Great story.

Amazing story. I didn't see the part about the rabbit. News from elsewhere no doubt. I guess it's reflex but it's something I don't do anymore. God bless 'em but damn things have a way of aiming for your tires.
