Trucker Killed When Flying Tires Collide With Cab

A fatal accident involving loose tires flying across the highway occurred in Lake Township, Ohio.

According to WTOL 11, the incident happened on I-280 around 2 p.m. on January 17. The tires on a southbound semi came loose from the axle, bounced across the median and flew into a northbound tanker. Ohio State Highway Patrol identified the driver as 69-year-old Daniel Gardner from Michigan. They determined that he was likely killed on impact when the tires collided with his cab.

The southbound driver, whose tires barreled across the highway, did not stop for the accident. The driver was found at a nearby truck stop later that evening. No charges have been filed yet, but the crash is still under investigation.
