Another vehicle has lost a wheel on the 400 near Highway 89, the second incident in less than a week.

Constable Lauren Ball with the OPP says there were no immediate reports of injuries, after a pick up truck lost its tire around 1:00 this afternoon, while heading north on the 400 before 89. She added the wheel bounced off the highway without striking anything or anyone. The pickup had been removed by tow truck before police even arrived on scene.
