Information:

A light vehicle travelling at low speed through a mine industrial area struck a pot hole and the wheel rim separated from the hub section of the front offside tyre. Rim failure can cause a driver to lose control, leading to a collision or roll-over, with high potential for impact injury to the occupants. Had the vehicle been travelling at high speed, a serious accident could have resulted.
