‘Did you see that!?’ Highway hazard you might have missed

DRIVING on the Gateway Mwy can be a hazardous business, but sometimes the dangers can be easy to miss.

One driver heading south last week spotted a this one almost after it had passed by.

"Did you see that!?" a voice can be heard on the dashcam video.

"It was a wheel, did you see that?"

Watched back on the dashcam footage, a wheel can be seen slowly rolling from the far side of a truck before drifting back through oncoming traffic.

Another person in the car missed it entirely.
