    One of the videos I watched in a driver safety class was about wheel/lugnut safety. It had an incident where a semi lost a tire on the right rear set of duals on the trailer and it came around the back of the trailer in a bouncing fashion over the center k-bar divider and landed where the windshield meets the roof on a Sunbird type vehicle. Killed the driver instantly. The tire wheel assembly traversed five lanes (3-1/2+ in the air) to land on this lady's car. The semi driver didn't even realize that he had lost a tire.

    Doesn't have to be a semi tire. I watched a rear tire come off a sand buggy and bounce up into the stands. Caught this guy square in the chest. Fortunately for the rest of the crowd, he was a big guy and slowed the tire down enough that no one else got seriously hurt.
