CCTV footage of a man chasing his car across a motorway - a hit for police

A surveillance video posted by Neuchâtel police showing a man chasing his car which had rolled off across a motorway has become a hit on Facebook

According to the police, just after 14:00 on Monday the man had parked on the hard shoulder before the exit for Colombier to speak to a truck driver.

At this moment his car rolled off and the man runs right across the highway to try and catch it.

The car then bounces off the guardrail, and back to the other side of the motorway where the man jogs towards it, dangerously close to a collision with other road users.

His car only stops when it crashes in a signpost. The man then jumps into it and drives off.

Police only saw the footage after examining surveillance footage to find out how the guardrail was damaged.

They posted the video on Facebook in a bid to find any witnesses and later that day, identified the driver.
