Gouging on Wheel Bearing 200 1988

have you ever been in a vehicle driving at speed when a wheel bearing seized and the front wheel flew off the car.

I have.
As a passenger in an early 60s VW Bus, driving up the Westside Highway in Manhattan doing about 50mph. The right front wheel came off, hit the guard rail and flew straight up about 40'into the air. Really lucky the bus didn't flip and roll. Really Lucky that the wheel just ended up harming no one as this happened at the northern end of Manhattan where there trees and scrub along that side of the highway.
I was 17 and I think I used up a couple of those 9-lives that are gifted to teenage boys.

Don't screw around with the damaged or semi damaged orwhat in-your-limited-experience-opinion are "Not too badly damaged."
