In Dekalb County, a woman was killed Friday morning by a tire that flew across several lanes of traffic and through her windshield. Investigators said the tire came from a Cartersville man’s pick-up truck.
As he was driving, it came off his vehicle and flew across the northbound side of the highway and over the median wall, where it hit and killed the Tucker woman. She was driving in the opposite direction on I-85, north of Clairmont road.
The woman had been driving her 16-year-old daughter to high school in the HOV lane. The teen was sitting in the passenger seat during the accident, but was unharmed.
The wreck happened at about 8:30 a.m. Police say any charges will depend on what caused the vehicle’s tire to come loose.
