Airborne Tire Slams Into Truck Driver's Windshield

Date: 3 February 2005
The driver of a tractor-trailer had to do some quick thinking Monday afternoon. A tire flew off a car from the southbound lanes of I-75 near Lockland and jumped the concrete barrier into the northbound lanes.

At least three cars dodged the airborne tire before it slammed into Steve Arner's windshield.

Arner says he had to duck down in his while he tried to control his truck.

Arner suffered some cuts but was able to pull his truck over safely to the side of the road.

"You got to try dodging it, ducking down," said Arner, "so, I didn't hit anybody."
