A flying tyre hit the target at an A1 filling station in England, in a bizarre incident caught on CCTV.
A wheel came off a vehicle travelling on the A1 southbound at North Muskham in Nottinghamshire, then bounced its way along the carriageway and through the BP station's free-standing Helios (Greek sun god) sign — leaving a gaping hole.
The incident happened at 10.30am on Tuesday. Area manager, Mr James Kemp, said: "A vehicle coming down the A1 at speed lost one of its tyres that then bounced at speed and height down the A1 towards our site. It hit the grass verge in front of our forecourt and bounced straight through our pole sign destroying the BP Helios.
"Luckily no one was injured but judging by the speed of the tyre on CCTV I have no doubt that it could have been fatal if someone had been in its path. It couldn't be found after so we presume it's still on its journey. Nobody came forward and accepted responsibility."
