ill clear this up for him, he did not hit the other guy, the tire, and disc for his brakes also came off. noone was injured, noone was hit, the only damage was to his truck. he lost his tire and wheel and him and the police officer looked and could not find his wheel and tire. it was towed to a gas station, and he will resume work on it tomorrow. he is at his dads place, and may not be able to respond for a day or two.

I assume he's driving the '95 Ranger in his Sig...was this a TTB related/caused incident or did something happen previously?

he is not sure what caused the wheel to come off. he thinks it was sheared off lugs and then when 1 or 2 sheared off the others let go because of too much pressure. just tryin to get things cleared up and yes it was in his 95 ranger that is in his sig.

hey everyone, thanks for tryin to clear that up wes..actually tho
it loooks like looses lugnuts, the ones that broke off where probibly from the fall, the lugs that were still on arent stripped, thy look as if the lug nuts were loose.the tire is still mia, and could be on any of the 3 highways and main roads near the spot it flew off. it actually flew off while in a turn on 84E right before exit 40, and i slid past the exit and stoped! the cop was more than helpful, but we couldnt find it.
