Dramatic vision from a police dashcam has shown the moment a man was intercepted driving with his trailer fully ablaze on the Bruce Highway.

In the early hours of Thursday morning, the Queensland Police Service received information that a trailer being towed by a Holden Rodeo had caught fire between Colosseum and Miriam Vale.

Sparks and flames jumped onto the road as the burning trailer travelled north just before 3am, leaving burning debris in its wake.

The trailer did not have any wheels and was being dragged along the highway. The officer activated his car’s lights and sirens in an attempt to get the motorist to pull over – but he kept driving.

The driver finally pulled over at the intersection of the Bruce Highway and Dovedale Road after driving approximately 20km with a trailer engulfed in flames.

Burning debris was littered across the highway in the trailer’s wake, which set multiple spot fires blazing along adjoining bushland in the area.

The 49-year-old male driver from Kybong is assisting police with their investigations into the matter.

‘Its just Marty McFly, he’s going back to the future with Dr Brown,’ one amused Facebook user commented under the video.
