XINXIANG, China, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- A person traveling on a Chinese road caught footage of a van driving with one wheel hanging off the axle in a nearly horizontal position.

The video, filmed Jan. 15 in Xinxiang, Henan Province, shows the white van driving with the front driver-side wheel hanging sideways in a nearly horizontal position.

The wheel still contacts the road and spins as the van drives on three wheels.

The van's driver, who proudly points to his damaged wheel, was reportedly trying to avoid paying tow truck fees by driving the van to the repair shop.

A motorist in Yinchuan was recently recorded using a wrench to steer a vehicle without a steering wheel. That motorist was unsuccessful in avoiding towing fees, as he was caught by police and fined $40.
