A lorry driver who was pulled over by police in the Czech Republic claimed he was too tired to notice he'd lost a front wheel.
Ales Stastna, 38, told police in Senov Havirov that he had just finished a marathon shift and hadn't even felt the wheel drop off.
"I could have sworn it was there when I set off," he told officers.
Police spokesman Gabriel Holcakova said: "He's lucky he didn't kill himself or cause a serious accident.
"He was given a warning, his truck was impounded and he had three points put on his licence."
