Glad I wasn't driving that truck. Good footage of a tyre failure.

WOW, wouldn't want to be beside it either.

Didn't look like anyone was hurt but I bet that driver needed a change of jocks.

Pop,
It was the most unusual thing I have ever seen. I can't make out what flew over the armco fencing. At first I thought it was a locking ring but looking closer I can't tell what the hell it was.

The reaction of the truck was awesome.

Hope he was close to a laundromat.

I have seen the result of a few truck tyre failures but never seen or heard of a truck getting lifted like that. Obviously by the amount of rubbish on the road he wasn't travelling light. I wonder if the explosion was a suspension air bag going off and causing some part of the suspension to drop and jack one side of the truck into the air.

Pop,
it could be as it looks like Europe and some of the trucks have airbag helpers on the steer.

What ever happened I think the IRA or Taliban must have been involved.

I do remember years ago being very very lightly loaded Ha! Ha! and blowing 1 steer tyre and 4 tyres on the drive. That sent me across a 3 way intersection and into a wheat field. It is true god looks after overloading idiots.

looked to me that the right steer blew out and dropped down and run on the rim. I could be wrong but it looks like a cap (re-cap) laying on the road which explains the blow-out. If so it is a good lesson for those who run caps on the steer.
