A Bendigo man, 64, escaped serious injury when his car left the Northern Hwy near Rochester and Elmore Health Service in Rochester on Friday at 4.30pm.
Senior Constable Dave Rowland of Elmore police said the man was lucky he did not hit any of the trees or fence posts as the car went down the 2.4m embankment.
It stopped when it hit the railway track.
Senior Constable Rowland ruled out speed or alcohol as contributing factors.
He said no one else was in the car and it did not hit any other vehicles.
