I think I'll put this under the heading "you can't make this stuff up." A reportedly legit Uber customer witnessed something he'll never forget. In this tweet from @_shawndagoat, you can see the steering wheel detach from the steering column; leaving it useless in the driver's hands. My favorite part of this is how the driver worked very hard to try and screw the wheel back on. All to the soothing music of Kiss From A Rose by Seal.
According to Fox News, the vehicle appears to be a Land Rover. They reached out to Uber, and were told that the incident is being investigated, and could not confirm that the event actually happened. If it's true, those riders may get vouchers for free rides in the future. Hopefully with sturdier steering wheels.
