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.
