Thomas Ivie presents ‘Flying Tire Incident’

| October 17, 2016

I was driving in Kansas City, Mo., when the wheel and tire of a car ahead of me came off. It rolled into the left lanes and out of my sight.

Sadly, this video view from the dashcam of owner-operator Howard Salmon puts to bed an accident-free period for the longtime independent spanning Salmon's 30-plus years ...

Traffic slowed down, and I thought it was because some vehicles hit the tire. All of a sudden, the tire was in the air, heading straight for me. Luckily it only took out the left portion of my bumper, and no other damage was done. No one else reported being struck by the tire to my knowledge. I still don’t know what it hit to come flying back at me.

The driver was uninsured of course.

This is quite a common occurance, fortunately it was not a truck wheel. There are many reasons for losing truck wheels which can be lethal three of which I was associated with. The first was a young mechanic whose car was struck with such force that it smashed the roof off and killing him and his mother. In another more recent event, a wheel came off a semi-trailer and killed a roadside worker. It was amazing how these very unfortunate people just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
