French police have been left baffled by a huge hole punched in the roof of a car – and believe a meteorite may be to blame.
Firefighters were called to a vehicle in Strasbourg in the early hours of Monday morning following reports of a smoking car. They arrived to find a 50cm-wide hole in the roof of the red Renault Clio and a broken window.
Luckily no one was inside at the time.
‘Upon our arrival, we noticed a relatively large impact, with a diameter of approximately 50 centimeters, which passed through the roof, the underbody and the fuel tank of the vehicle,’ said local fire captain Matthieu Colobert.
