Runaway Tire Narrowly Misses Officer in Texas

A law enforcement officer in Texas is counting his blessing after an unusual traffic stop.A driver with a flat tire called for help when he got stuck on a busy bridge. Just as the driver pulls his flat tire off the retaining wall and as Sergeant Davidson put his hand on the rail, a 200-pound wheel that broke free of an 18-wheeler flies by.

Somehow the 60-mile an hour tire only scuffed up the officer's weapon and ripped a screw out of his holster.

Take a another look at the video. He actually was standing in the path of the tire and only moves seconds before it scrapes by.
