Terrifying moment when a new tire of the family car flies and collides with an oncoming vehicle shortly after assembly
- Dashcam footage involved a tire rolling down a street and hitting an oncoming car
- The escaped tire was one of four tires that were newly fitted in an auto repair shop
- The tire bumped into a car, bounced back and jammed a traffic light pole
A newly mounted tire rolled down the street and crashed into an oncoming car after driving away from a moving vehicle in New Mexico.
Shocking dashcam footage shot in Albuquerque, New Mexico, captured the moment a brand new tire came off the bottom of a car and rolled down the street on the track of oncoming traffic.
At the beginning of the clip, the vehicle is seen moving away from a yellow auto repair shop with a collection of tires outside.
A band rolls down the street in Albuquerque, New Mexico, after the recording vehicle comes off
The runaway tire heads straight for an oncoming white car, while the driver of the recording vehicle stares in horror
The footage cuts to the dashcam in the front and shows the car driving down the street nearly 30 minutes later as the male driver tells a young girl and boy that ‘we’re going home’.
Suddenly the vehicle starts to vibrate and the man’s eyes are visibly shocked.
The rear dash cam shows a cloud of smoke rising from the rear of the car as it continues to vibrate.
You will then see a tire racing across the street before hitting an oncoming white car, damaging the right front light.
The driver, whose tire broke off, is heard: ‘Oh car! Are you serious?’
The white car cannot respond quickly enough and is hit by the tire, damaging the right front light
After bumping into the white car, the tire bounces up and down in the air before clipping the bottom of a traffic light pole
The little girl next to him asks, “Is that your band?”
After hitting the white car, the tire bounces backward with enough height to snap the bottom of a traffic light post.
At the end of the video, both drivers stand side by side and the recording man says, “We’re going to put them on!”
After the accident, the driver said, “My tire flew away after I got new tires as a shop and another car hit hard!”
The video was shot on June 5, but was recently shared online.
