Terrifying Footage Shows Tyre Bounce Over Barrier, Crash Into Oncoming Car

A commuter captured a tyre roll down a busy highway and bounce over a barrier into oncoming traffic, causing a driver to crash.

Drivers had quite a shock after a loose tyre bounced into oncoming traffic, over the median then striking an oncoming vehicle in New Jersey.

Jeep owner John Rice was driving behind his family when the event unfolded.

"Initially I thought please don't hit my wife, my wife's in the car in front of me, three kids in the car and that was going through my head, please don't hit her," Rice told ABC7.

The Jeep was left significantly damaged.

The entire incident was caught on camera by a person ravelling in a car initially alongside the out of control tyre, just before it bounced over the barrier.

An investigation is underway to find out where the tyre came from.
