TWO men who walked away from a car crash on the back roads around Wivenhoe Dam claimed to be chasing an alien space craft when found by police.
Police and the driver’s insurance company received several sketchy phone calls from the men, who appeared to be convinced paranormal activity caused the crash.
Police received the first call from the men at 2.25am Friday, saying they had been in an accident at Split Yard Creek andaskedfor the RAAF to attend.
It later became apparent the car had gone off the road and down an embankment near the Split Yard Creek bridge.
As the evening progressed, the men became increasingly agitated and scared of the situation.
The phone call dropped out, and after 30 minutes of trying to contact the men, police received a call from RACQ Insurance.
Police said the conversations with the men were vague and attimesbarelyunderstandable.
