It's every driver's worst nightmare. Captured in 20 seconds of chill-inducing video.
Andrew Sukhdeo was lucky enough to walk away unscathed after a wheel came flying off of a car travelling in the opposite direction on Highway 401 near Ajax, ON this week.
"I saw the tire just as it bounced for the first time and I was trying to calculate where it was going to come down but everything was just happening so quickly that there was just no time to react or think. I just kind of ducked," Sukhdeo told CTV.
All considered, things could have been worse. Sukhdeo told CP24 that he walked away with nothing more than the need for a new sunroof and windshield for his Toyota Corolla.
