simple - let the tyres down.
go to the nearest garage and get them pumped up again.
if they are damaged then the local garage can fit new ones at the cost of the driver and his stupidity.

Maybe the driver needs to be reacquainted with the Highway Code, with particular attention paid to the traffic sign section.
