Aw Nuts! Car Loses All 4 Tires on Road

Wrong bolts used to fasten summer tires on vehicle

A driver on a Switzerland highway now knows it's the little things that count.

Reuters reported that while speeding down the highway, all four of a vehicle's wheels had fallen off at the same time. All because the passengers had changed tires and not used the right nuts. 

The vehicle's passengers had pulled over to swap its winter tires for its summer tires, a common practice in Switzerland.  After driving back on the road, the vehicle came to a sudden stop as the tires all came off.

The only tragedy, however, was the damage done to the car.

"Luckily, no one was injured and no other vehicle was damaged," said St. Gallen cantonal Police in a statement.
