The car apparently travelling in the northbound lane when it went off the road to the right and rolled approximately 50-metres down an embankment before coming to a rest on its wheels.

A Police Service Dog and emergency crews searched the area but the vehicle had apparently been abandoned by the driver and no one was found.

Investigators saw no signs to indicate the person was seriously injured, but are concerned for the driver’s welfare given the severity of the crash. Attempts to contact the registered owner have so far been unsuccessful.
