Car tumbles off icy road, down embankment in Newberg

NEWBERG, OR (KPTV) -

Willy Dolan feared the worst when he saw a car down an embankment in Newberg.

"I got this sick feeling in my stomach as I watched this car start to roll down the hill, and you know what's coming," Dolan said.

Dolan said several people had stopped their cars to gaze at a large tree leaning on some overhead wires on Northeast Sunnycrest Road, which is just of Highway 99W in Newberg.

At about 4:30 p.m., one car rolled off the side of the road.

Dolan said he rushed over and found that no one was inside the car.

He said it was parked when it slid down the embankment.

The car's owner tells FOX 12 she had gotten stuck on the side of the road and got out of the car to wait for a tow truck. A car coming in the opposite direction then knocked the first car off the cliff when the driver lost control.

Photos and video showed the car come to rest between several trees.
