Amatuer hour with the impact will stretch the lugs and weaken them.I saw that. Is that nuts and she walked away, a little woozy. They said sheared lug nuts on the truck, well how did that happen?
Angular momentum is amazing (and underestimated), not ironic! hahahaAnd the tire that created this mess, was still inflated and the last thing moving. Irony.
Unless you are a first responder, best not to venture out onto a busy highway where everyone is doing about 80mph, unless you want the first responders to also be coming to you.Great how folks stopped to help……………….not
I have friends who don't drive so much, not like they used to. Just the necessities.I had something similar happen to me.
Driving on a 2 lane expressway (2 lanes each side) and I see a large truck in the opposing lanes lose an entire wheel.
I watched it bounce down the road, picking up speed, it veered into the 30', grassy median and was headed directly at my vehicle. I was doing 80 and it was closing fast. I braked hard, so it would hopefully pass in front of me, which worked, barely.
I didn't factor into the equation the mini van, just ahead of me, in the right lane. It bounced off the side of the mini van, demolishing the entire side and rebounded directly at my vehicle. It passed over the top of my vehicle, directly over the drivers side. I estimate it missed my roof by less than a foot.
Someone had my back twice that day.
