Central Otago police are investigating the mystery of a burnt out car which had crashed into the side of a bridge.

The car was found next to the Kokonga Bridge on the Kyeburn-Hyde Road, State Highway 87, on Monday.

There was no sign of the car's occupants.

"The car is so badly damaged investigators are still unable to confirm its make or registration at this time," Senior Sergeant Ian Kerrisk said in a statement.

The section of road is closed, with detours available, while officers investigate the scene.
