Man Decides To Keep Driving After Wheel Falls Off His Car
There are a few rules that you just have to stick to when you're driving.
They're ordinarily pretty straightforward, but sometimes people still forget to obey them. One of those rules is - before you set off, try to ensure that your car is fitted with the correct number of wheels.
That said, video footage has emerged that shows one driver for whom that was simply a step too far. The car in question was a white pick-up truck, and the video shows it piling down the outside lane of a road in the US with one of its front wheels noticeably absent.
This - as you might well imagine - causes quite a stir as it kicks up a whole load of sparks and presumably does further damage to the vehicle.
The video was uploaded by ViralHog, with a typically enigmatic explanation from the person who filmed it originally.
It said: "Some guys wheel fell of and he kept driving it. Guess he had to be somewhere right away."
More tellingly, perhaps, is the footage, during which they follow the vehicle as it makes its dangerous journey down a Houston freeway.
One of the people filming in the car can be heard at one point saying: "What the hell is this guy doing?"
A fine question, and one that most of us are ill-equipped to answer.

The important thing to remember is, whatever the hell this guy is doing, don't do it.
Whilst we are on the subject of things that you definitely shouldn't be doing in cars, a baby was also filmed driving a car recently. You may potentially have heard of the film Baby Driver, but this is an actual, honest to God, baby driving a car. Scary stuff.
The footage was captured from within the car in Wenzhou, China. In the video a man - who is presumably the baby's father - can be heard telling the kid to "speed up".
The mind boggles.
As well as that, more footage from Romania released recently shows a very young child - not as young as the baby, but still - driving a car on the motorway with some adults egging him on.
At one stage that kid is encouraged to overtake a lorry. Not exactly 'Parent of the Year' material.
Come on guys, it's pretty simple really.
Don't let your kids drive your cars, don't drink and drive, and for God's sake, before you set off, make sure you've got the right number of wheels.
