Dash Cam Records Head-On Collision After Loose Tire Flies Across I-75
A dramatic dashcam video has emerged of a lorry losing a tire on a highway in the US causing a crash. The footage, shot on April 26 on I-75 north bound near Clarksville Georgia, shows the loose tire rolling across the road without hitting any vehicle. However the driver in front of the filmer's car braked suddenly without leaving time to the filmer to avoid her vehicle. "The truck on the right in the lead has a set of smoking tires. As we where getting closer we noticed that there were parts falling off the tires and the smoke was getting more intense," the filmer wrote online. "We moved to the left lane and tried to stay back from the semi.
As we get closer to the semi the set of wheels come off the trailer and travels across the freeway." "After the tires go past the lady in front decided it was a good time to stop in the middle of the freeway," he added. "We where banged up a little and my dog was scared. The car , Toyota Prius V was totaled."
Reckless drivers are everywhere, let's face it. And driving isn't the easiest job in the world, particularly if you make a living out of it. This being said, we have a really scary situation here in this video, as a truck driver on a highway loses tire, as the driver that captured this with dashcam behind him manages to continue, only to hit the car right in front of it, because it stopped for no apparent reason! As the tire bounced away, the first driver probably got scared and hit on the brakes, causing the car behind him to have no other choice but to hit it.
