Last Friday, a motorist was killed when a tire fell off a pickup truck and crashed through the windshield of an oncoming minivan, the AJC reports. The incident took place on I-85, north of Clairmont Road before 8:30 a.m.

Dekalb police said that a Dodge pickup truck was driving northbound when one of the truck’s tired fell off and flew over the median wall. The tire struck the minivan and killed the driver, a 47-year old woman who was in the southbound lane.
