SUV Goes Airborne, Flips After Rolling Over Tire That Defies Physics
In a video that almost seems to show the direct defiance of the laws of physics, a vehicle could be seen flipping through the air like a toy after striking a runaway tire.
The crash happened early Tuesday morning near Gary, Indiana according to the Indiana State Police.
A tire had fallen off of a semi, rolling along the interstate upright if it were still attached. The vehicle recording the incident just narrowly misses the tire, and it slowly rolled into the next lane.
Moments later, an SUV runs directly into it, so perfectly that the tire launches the car into the air like it's a toy. When it lands, it flips several times before coming to a stop.
The tire, on the other hand, continues to roll along completely unaffected, spitting in the face of Isaac Newton.
According to Indiana State Police, the group recording the video stopped and helped the driver.
Despite how severe the accident looks, officials say no serious injuries were sustained in the accident.
