Police investigating after crashed Audi was 'sneakily hid'

Asking motorists to check if vehicle has been taken

Police are urging motorists to check if their car has been stolen following a crash on the Mountain Road.   

A black Audi collided with a fence, in the area of the Verandah, at around 7.40pm on Sunday but failed to stop or report the collision.  

Instead the driver continued onto Douglas before seeing a marked police vehicle and making off at high speed, and overtaking a lorry, near Brandish.

Officers say in an attempt to fool the police the driver then ‘sneakily hid’ the car at an abandoned set of farm buildings, near Clypse Reservoir, and removed the number plates.  

They’re now asking people who witnessed the car being driven, or who’ve realised their car is missing, to contact them at Police Headquarters on 631212.
