    200 LBS at 60MPH would have left a mark. I am glade he and the other guy were ok. The tire could have taken them both out!!!

    Wow... amazing timing...

    Wow, now that's an incredibly lucky break! When I first saw the video, I barely noticed the huge truck tire whizzing by........

    I recall the "treads" run up my shirt when I got mowed down by our school's tailback (John B.) in football practice, years ago. Can't imagine what the impact would have been like, had he been 200 lbs. and going 60mph.

    That was a close one! Great timing, to have moved out of the way just in time without knowing what was in store. Now his service weapon has character.

    A friend of mine's son had just graduated from the AF Academy and pinned on his wings as a pilot and was going for a motorcycle ride and a tire bounced up and hit him square in the chest and killed him.

    These guys were very lucky...it's deadly business out there on the road and too many people don't understand the physics of it are not just a good idea. It's the law.

    Lucky guy! I was driving home from work one morning saw a bus tire lying in the ditch near a bus stop and a bus nearby sans tire. Said to myself glad that didn't hit anyone, sadly when I got home heard on the news that it had indeed killed some poor guy standing at the bus stop reading a newspaper, likely never knew what hit him.

    Once I watched a tire come off a big rig as I was meeting it. Missed me by a couple seconds. How does this happen (other than the obvious!)?
