Yachats Ocean View Drive recently had a couple of cars either flying off a cliff or rolling down a cliff. On Yachats Ocean Road a few months back had a van nearly plunge into the sea but was stopped at the last second when it high-centered on a big boulder. Thursday, they had another incident – this one a “near miss” as two extremely intoxicated men in a pickup backed off the pavement toward an ocean cliff, also on Yachats Ocean Road. The two men were found highly inebriated according to one witness – the presumed driver rather sick in fact, still sitting in the pickup which was very close to the drop off.
A deputy sheriff arrived on scene in time to deal with the situation before it got worse for the two. No word yet on final disposition of the incident.
