A man allegedly driving without a license is accused of hitting a car, causing it to fall 100 feet down an embankment.

As previously reported, this past Wednesday, a car fell about 100 feet over an embankment near the Racoon Saloon on Route 9W in Marlboro and landed vertically into a body of water.

According to police, a 78-year-old man from Newburgh was driving without a license and unknowingly backed into a parked Honda while trying to back into a parking space.

The impact caused the Honda to slide on snow and ice and ultimately slide over the embankment and down into the body of water, officials say. The 78-year-old Newburgh man was given a ticket for unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

A fireman from the Marlboro Fire Department found the Honda unoccupied after members from the fire department used a series of ropes and pulleys to lower a fireman down the embankment to the car.

The owner of the car was later identified as a 26-year-old woman from Beacon. She was found at her home in good health, police say.

No injuries were reported, according to police.
