Lost Tire Causes Upper Milford Crash
No one injured despite lost wheel hitting another vehicle, police say.
A tire bounding from a car and into the path of another may sound like the thing of movies, but it was all too real for two drivers recently in Upper Milford Township.
Fortunately, no one was hurt, according to state police at Fogelsville.
Douglas F. Hall, 75, of Macungie was traveling north on Route 100 July 24 when the driver's front-side tire fell off his car as he rounded a turn, police said. The tire struck the bumper and hood area of an oncoming car driven by Lisa P. Gergar, 51, also of Macungie. Gergar was headed southbound near Beck Road about 10:20 a.m.
Police reported minor damage to Gergar's vehicle and did not specify damage to Hall's.
