According to officers, the driver had failed to notice the high winds and wet roads, and lost control of his vehicle.

Despite the extensive damage done to the BMW, and the fact the car was blocking a busy route, the driver decided to leave the scene, which a DDRU spokesperson described as “unbelievable”.

The engine was ripped out of the vehicle during the crash.
