A DRIVER of a classic 1990s Mercedes smashed into a Tree in Urmston and fled the scene with his Segway.

Police were called to a crash between a car and a tree at 12:10am this morning on the junction of Flixton Road and Lime Avenue.

One resident was in bed and heard the crash. He said: "I was in bed and heard an almighty bang so went outside. It was really bizarre - the man was wearing a suit, he got out of the car unhurt and pulled a segway out of the boot and seemed to just walk off with it.

"We called the police and they cleared the scene but we haven't heard anything since."
