Police believe a man narrowly escaped death after his car hurtled off the Snake Pass – but was stopped from a horrific plunge into the valley by a tree.
A picture released by Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit shows how the car crashed through a dry stone wall and down a slope, before striking the tree, which brought it to a halt.
Emergency services were called to the scene after the incident last night.
A spokesman for the roads policing unit said the driver was suspected of overtaking on a solid white line section of the road, which has a 50mph limit along its length, and winds through the countryside between #Sheffield and Glossop.
