Dramatic dash camera footage captured the moment a vehicle on a Los Angeles freeway ran over a tire that had just come off a pickup truck, launching the car into the air.
The incident occurred on Mar. 23 on the 118 Freeway in Chatsworth and was caught on Anoop Khatra’s dashboard camera.
Video shows traffic moving along the roadway when a dark-colored Kia approaches a Chevy pickup truck that had just transitioned into the middle lane. Moments later, the truck’s front driver’s side tire pops off right in front of the Kia.
The driver of the Kia hits the tire and shoots into a midair spin before crashing back onto the freeway hood first and rolling back right side up. As if that weren’t scary enough, the video also shows the tire coming back into the frame and slamming into the wreckage of the Kia as it skids to a stop.
Khatra said the driver of the Kia was the sole occupant of the car, and the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed there were no major injuries following the crash, an independent news agency reported.
