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.
