Runaway Tire Smashes Car On NJ Highway
This video is absolutely insane!
NJ.com has pictures of the aftermath, and amazingly no one was was injured.
Ignoring the awfulness of the accident, it's an incredible video to watch simply for the physics. I would never have guessed a tire would be able to maintain momentum on its own for so long, and I can't figure out how it hit the median at the perfect angle to actually make the tire jump up rather than just stop there. And when it finally hits the truck, the explosion scares the crap out me every time I watch it.
