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. rage driver forces van off road

Despite the missing tyre, the van isn’t hanging about, driving down the road at reasonable speeds and even squeezing into a tiny gap beside an oncoming bus.

The van’s driver, Colin Coleman, was convicted following the submission of the footage to police. The 51-year old was given an 18-week suspended prison sentence and an 18-month driving ban for dangerous driving.
