Describe an occasion when the vehicle you were travelling in broke down

I remember when my friend went together to Anandpur, which is a holy city in Punjab. I was a sudden plan to go there. We were five friends to enjoy the weekend. Because we were too exhausted from work and wanted to rejuvenate for next weekdays. When we reached near Ropar, halfway to our destination, the vehicle started to pull to the left-hand side, we were on driving over the flyover. I told one of my friends who was sitting alongside the driver seat. I was driving the car and parked the vehicle in the service lane of the highway. I went out to check the tires and found that the front left-hand side tire was punctured. We were already late because left to journey too late. To make things worse, the spare wheel did not have air. Then, we asked from a local shopkeeper about nearby tire repairing shop, he told us that, it is about a kilometre away from the place where our car broke down. Then I and my friend took a tire with us and went to the shop to get it repaired. This breakdown wasted more than one hour. The weather of that day was very warm and the summer was about to start. At last, we reached our destination by noon. We enjoyed a lot at that place and returned back home by evening. This was the unpleasant experience that I faced with my car and made a promise to myself that I will always the air inflation level in all tires before leaving to a long journey.
