I've been in a car that lost one of it's wheels while driving. It was a scary thing...especially since it happened on the Sagtikos Parkway just after rush hour! Unlike the drunk asshat in the article though, we didn't hit anything. It just fell off.

When I was working at GM, I came into the parking lot and parked in my usual general area. I got out of my truck and looked over about 50 meters and saw this car that had severe driver side front end damage and nothing but the rim left. I walked over to take a closer look and saw the gouge marks leading up to the car. I said to myself, "Looks like skilled trades is in early today." But then the best part was noticing the dude laying on the ground behind the car. At first I thought he was a victim of the driver but then I noticed his pants were undone and he had no other noticeable injuries and still breathing. I ran up to the phone at the gate and called medical to come on out. It took them over five minutes to respond and when they got there, they checked his vitals and called for an ambulance. The ambulance guys said that is not uncommon for somebody absolutely drunk out of his mind to pass out when they take a piss. Something about blood pressure dropping. I never heard of that before. Being a union shop, I'm sure he got to keep his job.

Pretty much! The best part about the whole thing is when a State Trooper stopped to make sure we were okay the driver of the car, a 23yr old male, said "Yes Officer, we're fine but I want my mommy!".

CSB:

Driving a military HMMWV down I-10 in Florida. The back left tire decides to farking fall off. As I was also pulling a trailer, things got really wobbly. I quickly get over on the shoulder where the back of the hummer dug a Goddamn trench. It's not long before I have some LT yelling about how I should have done a proper PMCS. I tell him "Maybe sir, you can point to the section in the TM where it tell me HOW TO CHECK IF THE FARKING ROTOR IS GOING TO SNAP OFF THE GODDAMN DRIVE AXLE?"
He couldn't.

"CCTV footage has been released showing a drunk motorist driving for a mile through Lincoln city centre with a wheel missing from his car."

It wasn't missing. It was in his front seat.
 
2012-07-17 02:11:06 PM
Not only that but he was driving from the passenger seat, and on the wrong side of the road.

Mr Scott said: "He came home, had his dinner and drank a bottle of wine. He went to bed at 23:00 and the next thing he remembers he is being taken by the police to hospital in an ambulance."

sounds like someone slipped him a Mickey.

Worked midnight shift in a gas station and one night about 3 AM a car motors past with one tire fully flat loudly making that wubba-wubba sound. Ten minutes later, here it comes again, now it sounds like an empty metal trashcan being kicked down a steep hill. Crunches into my station and pulls up to the pumps. Tire is long gone and rear wheel rim is a smoking hammered-flat ruin... car is literally lurching up and down a couple inches with every turn of the wheel. Driver rolls down the window, peers out, and in a tiny voice says "... I think you better check the oil". Don't think she was drunk but she was totally unable to deal with what was happening in her world. Cops took her to Saint E's I think.

That's too much trouble to go through to get a DUI. All you have to do is sit through a green light.

busy chillin': In January 2011 I was listening to this song and it was snowy outside and I thought I had snow packed in my wheel wells. So I kept driving. Then I thought maybe that semi truck had a super loud engine or something. So I kept driving. Then a Suburban drove by and I thought that his engine was about to blow up. Then I thought, damn this song is intense, really booming my speakers. Then I thought, no, it is the snow packed in the wheel wells just making the car ride rough. Then I noticed my back right tire going flying off and roll down the interstate and fly into the ditch. I made to the exit and noticed I completely destroyed my tire and was driving on the rim. Oooooops.


Oopsie.

Having unbuttoned breeches is an identifiable injury?

Or does it depend on the state?

Here ya go!:

HMMWV: Kinda like a Hummer, but with no A/C, no stereo, and canvas seats instead of leather. Also no cupholders.
Trailer: An unmortorized wheeled attachment that allows you to carry more things than your vehicle normaly carries.
LT: A guy, who despite a college education, doesn't know shiat about shiat, and is somehow in charge of things. He will give orders to soldiers until a Non-Commisioned Officer comes by and tells them what they are actualy supposed to be doing, his markmanship is so bad that he couldn't hit a maintenance bay if he was inside it, and he is NEVER to be entrusted with a map.
PMCS: A process of checking to make sure a military vehicle is mission/road worthy. The exact steps are to make sure the tires are round, the engine is still in the engine compartment, the air filter sounds 'clean', and that the oil is less thick than a Wendy's Frosty. Then you spend 45 minutes bulshiating with some buddies, and then pencil off all the checkboxes and turn in the sheet.
TM: No one in the military is exactly sure what this is. We think it's something officers make up when they want something done in a stupid way.

I lost a wheel on the M6 motorway many years ago. Fortunately it was a rear wheel on a front wheel drive car. Even more fortunately it was a rental car.
Spectacular rooster-tail of sparks before I was able to bring the speed down from 70mph.
No warning - the rear drum just came off, taking the wheel with it.

"TM: No one in the military is exactly sure what this is."

It means manual. I realize you're joking, but others might want to know.

Sorry for the full quote, on my phone.

You are right, though.

NEVER give a LT a map. Sheesh.

I'm not privy to the detail on the 3 previous times he came to work in such a state to know if he admitted he had a problem. He did keep his job on those occasions so it would seem plausible.
