[WATCH] Burst water main leaves woman's car buried by mudslide in Simon's Town
Jan. 10, 2020
A Cape Town woman's Toyota Tazz was buried under a torrent of mud when a water pipe burst along Simon's Town main road.
Marion's car is among a few vehicles left trapped under the mudslide on Friday morning. Thankfully, she's insured!
"We were driving from Simon's Town to Fish Hoek. I saw the water on the road and then we saw the mud ... We thought we could drive through it but, unfortunately, we got stuck...deeper and deeper.
"A bus tried to get through and they are parked next to us. My car is now completely submerged! I just put new tyres on it!"
The main road has been closed to traffic. Motorists are urged to use Dido Valley Road and Redhill Road as alternative routes.
(Marion's car is pictured in the tweet below, eclipsed by the Golden arrow bus stuck next to her. Eish!)
