Mystery how top motor crashed
9:30am Wednesday 30th June 2010 in Basildon
MYSTERY surrounds how a top-of-the-range sports car ended up in pieces at the side of the road.
Motorists on their way to work yesterday were shocked to see the £57,000 black BMW M3 convertible in a tangled wreck.
The luxury car had clearly hit the wall at the top of Chester Hall Lane, near to its junction with Cranes Farm Road.
Chris Lane, spokesman for Essex Police, said officers couldn’t say when the car was crashed as it was just found abandoned. He said: “We are continuing to try to trace the registered owner.”
It is thought the crash happened some time between 7pm on Friday and 8am on Monday.
