A white van sped off down the road without a driver after the door opened on a steep bend.
20 stone White van man Hans On-mewheel, 27, who was not wearing a seatbelt, slid off his seat and out of the open door as he drove round a sharp bend in West Midlands.
Three other people in the van with him suffered light injuries when the van crashed into a wall.
On-mewheel said: "I was in a rush and just didn't notice the door wasn't closed properly. It was bad luck."
West Midlands police have already released the CCTV pictures to ITV's 'Police, Camera, Action' programme, cashed in the cheque, gone down the pub and spent it.
