This particularly terrifying footage comes to us from the I-66 in Virginia. In it, we see a first-generation Jeep Cherokee shed its front driver’s side wheel.
The Cherokee itself is able to pull to the side of the road without further incident, but the stray wheel carries on its merry way, bouncing over to the other side of the carriageway.
After narrowly missing two vehicles, it smashes into the front of a Nissan Versa, causing a huge amount of damage thanks to the sheer momentum of the object.
We haven’t been able to find any reports regarding the condition of the Nissan driver, but fortunately, it looks as though it was the front bumper - rather than the windscreen - which bore the brunt of the impact.
