A driver abandoned their damaged car after a single-vehicle accident on Commonwealth Avenue in Parkes on Saturday morning.
ACT Fire and Rescue and police were alerted to the incident shortly before 8.30am, with the white vehicle found unaccompanied when fire crews arrived at the scene near the southern approach to the Commonwealth Avenue bridge.
The car was found surrounded by scattered debris in a grassed area to the west of Commonwealth Avenue, near the northbound entry ramp which comes off Flynn Drive.
Tyre marks suggest the vehicle veered off Commonwealth Avenue.
An ACT Emergency Services Agency spokesman said an ambulance attended the scene but was not used.
An ACT Policing spokesman said police enquiries were continuing.
