Tire flies off SUV in crash, hits car

Bizarre accident happened on Highway 151 near Loop 410


SAN ANTONIO – Slick and wet roads may be to blame for a bizarre traffic accident on Highway 151 near Loop 410.

Police said a white Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling east around 8:30 p.m. Sunday when the driver lost control and slammed the SUV into the median.

The collision caused one of the tires on the SUV fly off and hit another vehicle, which then crashed.

A third car slid down an embankment as it tried to avoid the wrecked vehicles and debris.

Several people were examined by EMS at the scene. No one was seriously injured.
