Car pulled from cliff in Stony Point after deadly fall

Posted: Updated:

? Investigators retrieved a minivan that fell about 300 feet down a cliff in Stony Point killing a wife and mother Wednesday.

Police say 34-year-old Victor Han pulled over on Perkins Memorial Drive on Bear Mountain to take in the scenery. He claims he put the vehicle in park, but turned and saw it rolling down the steep cliff between two boulders with his wife and young daughters inside. The girls, ages 3 and 5, were strapped in the backseat and were unharmed. However, investigators believe their mother 35-year-old Hejin Han was not wearing her seatbelt on the passenger side. Authorities say the minivan would have fallen farther down the mountain, but it was perched on a big rock.

Police are questioning Victor Han about the deadly incident.
