Police have released more details of how a car lay undiscovered at the bottom of a motorway embankment in Gloucestershire for more than six hours.
Officers believe the electrics on the silver Vauxhall Corsa failed after it left the southbound carriageway and crashed into heavy undergrowth half a mile south of Junction 10 at Cheltenham.
The accident happened just after 11pm on Wednesday (7 August) - but the car wasn't spotted until 5.30am on Thursday (8 August).
The driver of the vehicle - a 32-year-old man from Kettering in Northamptonshire - was found dead at the wheel. They say that the next of kin of the man who died and the coroner have been informed.
The force have thanked the lorry driver who reported the car, and alerted emergency services to the incident.
Gloucestershire Police are still seeking more information to determine exactly how the crash happened:
