The car crashed into a tree

The silver car ended up half way up a tree after miraculously avoiding two lanes of stop-start traffic as it rolled at speed down the steep road.

The driverless motor, which was being chased by a man and a woman, thought to be the driver and a passenger, clipped the sloping edge of a crash barrier which launched it high into the tree.

Driver Paul Morris-Hill captured the accident on his dashcam, on the steep Detling Hill near Canterbury, Kent, on Wednesday evening.
