According to Michigan State Police, a tragic incident occurred when a driver lost his life due to a tire detaching from another vehicle, propelling through the air, and striking his car’s windshield and roof.

The unfortunate event took place on Interstate 94 in Ann Arbor around 4 p.m. on Tuesday. A Dodge Journey SUV, operated by a 38-year-old man from Jackson, was traveling westbound when the front driver’s side tire dislodged. Subsequently, it crossed over the median wall and collided with an eastbound car, driven by a 49-year-old man from Dearborn Heights.
