The koala crawled inside the vehicle while the auto was parked in the hills on the outskirts of the city.

'Upon arrival I was aware of the smell of burnt fur which added to the trauma of the situation'.

If you look closely you can see the koala hiding behind the wheel.

"She was stuck in there, I tried to get her out but she was really wedged in there tight and hanging on for dear life". No, I've never seen anything like that and it's absolutely incredible.

There's a koala bear in there!

She climbed into the vehicle in Adelaide, Australia.

The female koala, who has been named Kelli, had climbed into the wheel of a auto for shelter unbeknownst to the driver.

"We've had people think they might have hit a koala, really looked around the vehicle and not being able to find it, and then driven off somewhere but eventually hearing noises", Mr Bigham said.

Ms Brister said: "It would have been hot in there".

It was while rushing the koala to the vet that Ms Brister found a sad element to the story.

We just glad the mammy survived and are hoping she finds her way back to her baby after her ordeal.

A koala has miraculously survived a deathly 16 kilometre journey while she was stuck in the wheel of a vehicle.

"The female was in shock for 48-hours that followed, anxious and hyper vigilant", Ms Brister recalled once she had taken the koala home.

But sadly that's when it became clear Kelli was missing a joey.
