Near the town of Ashford, in Kent County, England, two police officers nearly shared the same fiery fate as their F31 BMW Patrol wagon on the side of M20 highway. Something caused the officer’s car to begin spewing flames from the engine compartment and the officers were able to scramble away from the white hot wreckage just before the whole car exploded into flames which ended up consuming most of the car. Fire crews were forced to shut down the highway until they were able to douse the blaze. Officials have not made an official statement on the fire’s cause.
