A driver had to make a hasty retreat after the Mazda motor car he was driving caught fire today in the vicinity of the Kingston Container Terminal (KCT) in Kingston.

The driver of the vehicle, Rohan Bailey, escaped unhurt.

"I just heard a bang and then saw smoke coming from the bonnet, so I got out and ran for safety", said Bailey.

The vehicle drew the attention of several onlookers as it burned on Shannon Drive (the road adjacent to the KCT).

The police were on the scene.
