“I feel a weird vibration in my steering wheel.”
We all know (or at least should know) what it feels like when you’re driving on a flat tire. Steering is more difficult, there’s bad vibration, and your car is harder to control. Now imagine driving a car that’s missing most of a wheel.
This Volkswagen Jetta driver either is incredible stupid, doesn’t care, or is trying to run away from some kind of accident/incident/crime and need to disappear as fast as possible.
According to the video uploader and dashcam-equipped driver that caught the Jetta, the car was going about 75 mph and missing about 25-percent of the wheel. Not the tire, mind you, THE WHEEL.
And the driver just keeps on going, somehow controlling their front-wheel drive car at speed. Before exiting onto a different highway, the camera-equipped driver captures the Jetta driver quickly changing lanes at the last second, with a trail of smoke coming from the back.
Thankfully everyone was safe because the four-way lights were on!
