Then...whilst doing 95kph, there was a large crunch followed by a horrific grind, Ben looked out the drivers side window and saw the right rear wheel overtaking us. NOT good.
We managed to safely get out of the way of the traffic and thankfully, the wheel, which crossed over 3 lanes of traffic (including 2 lanes of oncoming traffic) mangaged to not hit anyone.
As heartrates slowly reduced, we managed to get hold of the RAA, got towed to the Gold Coast, hired a car and managed to pick up Jay and Nadine (although a number of hours late) and make it to Rainbow Beach.
