One Split Second......


 This just happened a little while ago:





LEXINGTON, Mass. (WHDH) -
Police are on the scene of a deadly crash on Route 128 in Lexington, where a tire struck a car.
State Police said a vehicle lost a tire on the southbound side of Route 128. The tire then flew over the barrier and hit a car on the northbound side.
The person in the vehicle has been pronounced dead. 



Story HERE 


It appears the tire came off a Dodge pick-up and crossed the median:

  1. Nuts weren't tightened. Negligent homicide (manslaughter) charges should be preferred.

  2. Similar accident out here in CA a couple years back. Guy driving along what looked like a wall of Oleanders in the center divide, and a tire comes crashing through his windshield from a truck going the opposite direction.
    You never know when your time is up! Just takes a second.

  3. If you look at the 1:00 minute mark of the video, it is obvious that the truck was overloaded. That truck is only a half ton model. To safely haul that driver, you'd need at least a 3/4 ton truck, or maybe even a one ton dually.
