DIY den­tistry

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

A CANA­DIAN truck driver has been charged af­ter po­lice saw him car­ry­ing out his own den­tal work on the road.

Of­fi­cers pulled over the truck driver in On­tario af­ter an­other driver re­ported the ve­hi­cle was mov­ing er­rat­i­cally.

Po­lice say when they stopped the truck, they found the driver had been try­ing to ex­tract his own tooth and steer the truck at the same time.

He had re­port­edly tied a string around a bad tooth and con­nected it to the roof of the cab, hop­ing a big bump would re­move it.

Po­lice said it had worked and the tooth had been re­moved when they ap­pre­hended the man, who was charged with care­less driv­ing.
