A pickup driver fled a crash on New Year’s Eve but didn’t get far without a front wheel.

The black Chevy Silverado struck a white car on Friday around 3:15 p.m. while traveling eastbound near 400 Totten Pond Road.

The truck also appeared to have hit another silver-colored vehicle.

The pickup then fled the scene, according to news photographer Peter Lobo.

The truck's front tire was left at the scene of the crash.

Driving with no left front tire and airbags deployed, the operator stopped at a dead end less than a mile away on Craig Lane.

Responding Waltham Police officers questioned the driver to determine if there was a passenger, as the windshield on the passenger side was cracked.

A woman in the silver vehicle and the driver of the pickup truck were both transported to the Lahey Hospital with unknown injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
