Watch: Pickup somehow loses front wheel whilst driving on the highway

Looks like someone needs to tighten their wheel nuts a bit better!

One of the greatest fears for any motorist is for something on their car to break or fall off. This very rarely happens, but when it does it isn't all that enjoyable.

This video shows a pickup truck in Warrenton, Virginia which somehow managed to lose a wheel whilst driving down the highway.

As you can see, the white pickup is quite happily driving down Route 29 N, when suddenly it loses the passenger-side front wheel when braking. Thankfully the driver is quickly able to come to a stop and pull over onto the grass verge.

The only possible answer to this could be lose wheel nuts, but if you think it could be something else, let us know because we'd love to know.

  • It was a cheap aftermarket rim. I am surprise the truck didn’t have the Carolina squat built into it. That would have been great to see the driver ha due that.

  • That’s surprising, even for a Chevy.

  • Could be bearing failure. Had that happen in a 26k pound milk truck once. Thought I was getting a flat and just as I was pulling to the side of the road the entire wheel assembly (brake drum everything) took off across the interstate. Luckily it was 4am so no traffic. Rode on the brake pads for about 100’. Not fun.
