Car crashes into runaway truck wheel on highway

Updated: 

A motorist in Poland got the surprise of a lifetime recently, after they crashed into a truck wheel that suddenly came loose.

Dashcam footage recorded from a following car shows the truck travelling along a highway on a clear day.


As the recording car approaches, the truck seems to start slowing down – as if in anticipation of some unforeseen event.

All of a sudden, one of its wheels falls off and rolls into the outside lane, right into the path of another vehicle.

The car is unfortunately caught out by the rogue wheel, and crashes into it at speed.

The collision leaves a trail of destruction along the outside lane of the highway, with large pieces of debris being scattered over the road surface.

It is unclear from the video whether anyone was injured in the crash.
