Errands in Levin today. As we drove north past the consecutive rail and river bridges and round a bend we passed a petrol tanker stationary on the side of the road by Tatum Park — flashing lights, cones, cops etc. It had lost a whole front wheel and had driven on the rim for a bit. Must have been some stellar driving to: not crash, not roll, not go off the road and down the bank. By the time we came home from our errand an hour or so later it was gone. The only thing left was the groove in the road from the wheel rim.

Amazing in part because this stretch of road is notorious for its frequent fatal accidents.
