This story is a great example of why you should always Check your NUTS!
A pedestrian was left with a fractured chest and skull when he face-planted into the ground after a runaway tyre hit him on the back of the head.
Roberto Carlos Fernandes, 50, was walking along the pavement with his wife in Ipatinga, Brazil, when the loose tyre came speeding towards him.
It had just come off a vehicle on the opposite side of the dual-carriageway – and careered over two reservations towards the couple.
It bounced several times before smashing into the back of his head – face-planting him into the hard concrete.
It may have been a freak accident but in reality if wheels are not fitted correctly and torqued to the right setting then this really can happen.
