A Florida mother and her school-aged daughter escaped serious injury Saturday night after a tire slammed through the windshield of their car in what authorities are calling a “freak accident.”
The accident happened around 6:30 p.m. on U.S. Highway 19 in Clearwater when a tire came off a southbound vehicle and bounced over the median just north of Drew Street, the Clearwater Police Department said.
The loose tire crashed through the windshield of a northbound vehicle. A woman and her young daughter were inside the car at the time of the incident, according to police.
The mother was driving while the child was in the back seat. Police said “thankfully” no one was in the front passenger seat, which sustained most of the damage when the tire struck the vehicle.
