Back in July ... A man and his family were driving on a New Jersey highway when they saw a wayward tire rolling toward them. Video of the incident was recorded on Route 440. As the tire rolled down the highway, it suddenly jumped onto the median. It rolled along the other side and then headed straight for the family's vehicle.
The potential for death is so high its scary , and it could happen at any time to anyone.
The tire of my own personal vehicle came off last year while driving 65MPH on the highway ..NOT FUN. Luckily no other cars were hit when my tire literally FLEW OVER the on coming cars !
The Moral of the story...always make sure the lug-nuts are tight before you hit the road !
