Car Collides With Tires On Highway 40

A freak accident occurred Tuesday afternoon near Craig when at set of dual rear tires fell off a truck and struck a car on Highway 40 4 miles east of Craig. According to Craig fire fighter Troy Hampton, the failure was caused by lug nuts that broke
propelling the tires into the car. Fortunately no one was injured. Hampton says this is the first time in his career to see lug nuts break off in this nature. Photos from the scene courtesy of Doug Slaight for Craig Fire/Rescue.  Click to enlarge.
