Van filmed driving while missing a wheel

Staff writer

It's easy enough to continue on your way down the road with a brake light out, or perhaps the trim from a door mirror missing. But to drive down the road while completely missing a tyre takes some doing – and it's exactly what one van driver was filmed doing.

The van, a Ford Transit, is filmed proceeding as if nothing was wrong, despite the offside rear wheel completely missing. Instead, the heavy van drives along on its wheel rim, gouging a deep trench into the tarmac and sending sparks and debris flying.
