A CAR was damaged when a wheel came off a trailer travelling in the opposite direction and smashed into it.
The white Volkswagen Golf was travelling northbound in the M1, near Woodall Services, when the wheel bounced in front of it and hit the bonnet.
The trailer which was white and had blue tarpaulin over the top, was being pulled by a small white van with amber lights on the roof. Police said the driver pulled onto the hard shoulder, detached the trailer and drove off.
The Golf driver, a 65-year-old Nottinghamshire man, was unhurt.
Anyone with information about the incident, on Sunday, February 19, at 10.30am, is asked to call police on 101.
