He states that he and a friend were driving down the North Dallas Tollway in North Texas when they saw an object "bounce up at least 200ft (if not higher)"

The tire then struck a vehicle that was approximately six car lengths in front of him. He stopped to help the older man who was driving get out of the car, noticing he was bloody and bruised along with being disoriented. There were no passengers in the car.

Where Did it Come From?

The man who shot and posted the video speculates the tire could have fallen off of an airplane passing overhead. Someone in the comments section pointed out that it is most likely off of an 18-wheeler.

Could Have Benn Much Worse

Thankfully, the older gentleman did not seem to be seriously injured in this heart-stopping incident, but it serves as a sobering reminder to always expect the unexpected when you're behind the wheel. So, the next time you hit the road, remember to stay alert, stay safe, and keep your eyes peeled for any rogue tires that might come rolling your way
