Dinuba man dies after runaway tire smashes through windshield

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Dinuba man is dead following a tragic accident near Bakersfield Friday night.

The tire hopped over the center divide and came crashing through their windshield.

The man was taken to the hospital where he later died, while his 9-year-old daughter recovers from her injuries.

The collision remains under investigation, and it has yet to be determined whether the other driver will be cited for the accident.
