It sounds like your humming noise is likely a bad wheel bearing or tire. I would lean more towards a bad wheel bearing. A visual inspection can easily determine where the noise is coming from in this case. Keep in mind this is a safety concern which requires an immediate inspection.

The bearing can also cause anti-lock brake issues which can cause strange braking issues. Have a certified mechanic take a look at the car to pinpoint the source of the noise and find a fix.
