Tire flies off semi on highway & strikes dump truck

Quimby Mug Bayou Florida

Tire debris, or road gators, are pretty common on the highway—but how about an entire tire rolling down an interstate?!

A trucker driving recently on U.S. 266 said an intact tire came off a semi and rolled into the path of a dump truck. The trucker’s dashcam caught all the action. No injuries were reported.

It’s bad enough that a dump truck hit the tire. Think about how bad it could have been had a smaller vehicle been involved.
