About this image
The photographer's original caption for this view reads:
'CRASH IN THE DARK over Cliff Edge of Mam Tor, to fall over 50 Feet. Turning over several times as it fell.
Two men in it, being thrown out on first turn, to roll down the muddy bank. The Car was smashed beyond repair.
The accident happened at midnight last night. Castleton, Derbyshire.'
This view shows recovery in progress with the damaged car about to be dragged back up to the road and a police sergeant making notes. The man standing next to the latter may possibly belong to the AA or RAC. The unfortunate motor is an Auto Carriers Ltd (AC) vehicle.
Mam Tor is a 517m (1,696ft) hill, unstable lower layers of shale making it notorious for landslips, these prompting its alternative name of the Shivering Mountain.
