Flying Tire Crashes Head-on With Car

ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. (AP) – Northwest Lancaster County Regional police said 32-year-old Lori Ann Clegg of New Cumberland was driving westbound on Route 283 early Friday morning when her car was struck by an unsecured wheel that was ejected from a large vehicle traveling eastbound. The wheel traveled across the median into the westbound lanes where it collided head-on with Clegg’s car. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Police said the fog was so heavy that it’s possible she never saw the wheel coming.
