Kota Kinabalu: Three women in their 20s escaped unscathed when their Honda plunged into a monsoon drain along Jalan Kepayan-Lintas here, Wednesday - the scene of similar incidents in the recent past.
It was learnt that the trio were heading towards Cyber City from the Sepanggar direction when a dog suddenly dashed across the road, prompting the vehicle to swerve and dive into the drain at about 7am, near the RTM building.
The water in the drain was at waist level.
They managed to climb to the roof of the vehicle where they sat until passersby came and assisted them out.
Traffic personnel also arrived at the scene later.
