Massive Runaway Tyre Rolls Into Car At High Speed, Car Loses Fight

Roads can be dangerous at the best of times – even more so when objects are flying at you.

One unfortunate driver in the USA was caught unawares as a tyre came rolling towards him. Well, it was more like two tyres: two rims, a hub and an entire brake drum as well.

The obstacle, believed to have been from a lorry further up the road, appears small at first but as it speeds into view, veering across the two lanes, the accident seems inevitable.

The driver sees the oncoming collision and slams on the brakes but it’s too late…

Ker-runch!

The head-on crash totals the front of the car and sends the tyre hopping back down the road.

It can be very hard to gauge an object’s movement if it’s coming right at you, and swerving your car because you see a speck that doesn’t even seem to be moving is a pretty stupid thing to do 99.9 per cent of the time. This time, though, it might have been worth it.
