Burned Saab 9-3 Convertible on a highway in UK

Burnt Saab

Yesterday, Motorists faced disruption on the A92 near Carnoustie (UK) after a Saab 9-3 convertible was engulfed in a tea-time fireball.

The driver of Saab 9-3 thankfully escaped unhurt after bringing it to a halt in the slip lane of the eastbound carriageway just before the Muirdrum turn-off. But he could only watch in horror as the Saab was completely destroyed by the fierce blaze, suspected to have been started by a mechanical fault.

The alarm was raised at 5.30pm but such was the ferocity of the blaze that firefighters could not prevent the Saab being reduced to a charred shell. An ambulance also attended but the male driver of the Saab escaped injury.

  • Exactly the same thing happened to me while I was driving, luckily I was able to get out. It was my pride and Joy and in immaculate condition, 5 years old with low mileage, guy at Saab was fantastic at the beginning but once the car was removed and sent to Saab, they no longer answered my letters or calls, consequently got minimum amount for the car off my insurance company. I so miss my car but nervous about buying another one.
