Wheel flies off SUV on 407 in Brampton

Police are warning drivers to make sure their winter tires are properly installed after an incident over the weekend in Brampton.

A recently installed snow tire came loose off a moving SUV en route to London rolling across highway 407 into traffic.

Footage from a dashcam posted to YouTube shows a Black Ford Explorer travelling westbound on the highway in the area of Airport Road at around 8 a.m.

Suddenly, sparks begin to fly from underneath the vehicle and the tire comes flying off, bouncing into traffic and then landing in a ditch.

No one was injured during the incident, including the driver of the SUV, likely due to his effective handling of the situation.
