A video showing an oncoming vehicle slamming into a loose runaway wheel on the West Coast Highway at 8AM yesterday has gone viral.
In an earlier video, a goods lorry was seen travelling along the highway when one of its tires came loose, running itself onto the opposite end of the expressway where there were a number of cars travelling at high speed.
According to the video taken from the dashcam of the affected car, the driver was unable to press the brakes when he saw the hurtling wheel, which sped towards him at high speed.
The impact smashed the car's bonnet and caused the number plate to fall off. The driver also sustained injuries on his right ear and was placed under observation.
