When firefighters arrived at the scene, there was no trace of a vehicle.

To be sure, officers used a thermal imaging camera to scan the area but again found nothing.

A spokesman from the fire service said calls like this were '˜unusual' but added: '˜Sometimes they do turn out to be road traffic collisions with people still trapped in cars. '˜But this time it appeared the car drove back onto the road.'
