Truck tires bounce over median and hit oncoming car

Posted: Updated:
BROCKTON, Mass. (WHDH) - Two tires went flying off a tractor-trailer and took a bad bounce over the median and right into oncoming traffic.

The driver had no idea what was coming when the tires hit her car head on.

State Police said the tractor-trailer was traveling northbound on Route 24 in Brockton when it lost two tires.

Witnesses said the tires jumped over the median into oncoming traffic and hit a car head-on.

The driver of that car, a 36-year-old woman from West Bridgewater, was taken to the hospital where she was treated and released.

No one else was hurt and no other cars were hit during the crash.

A State Police truck team inspected the truck on the side of the highway; it was put out of service for various violations.

There have been no charges filed against the driver at this point.
