Police in Ontario, Canada are looking for the driver of a truck that lost its load of a “tractor tyres”.
The Tractor Tyres came off the truck and bounced straight into the front of a car driven by a lady driver!
Unfortunately, the driver was called Miroslawa Chmielewski. Subsequently, she was the only person in the car and died at the scene. First of all, the accident took place in Burlington. On the Queen Elizabeth way where the 54-year-old female lost her life.
Earthmover tyre fitter
This incident reminds me of a former time when I was an earthmover tyre fitter. Regularly went to Quarries in North Yorkshire to fit the huge tyres that fit Monster Trucks and dumper trucks.The route we took was up the A1 trunk road! So,we would load the tyres to be fitted onto our trucks and then set off to fit them (about a 2-hour drive) . Indeed the tyres were massive! So,the trucks were up to the maximum weight limit.
One very beautiful sunny day I set off up the A1 about six in the morning, I got about halfway there when I noticed that my truck was starting to go a bit faster, not thinking why, I carried on the journey, only to be pulled up by a police car with flashing lights.He shouted at me in a very grumpy voice that “I had lost half my load of tyres,” when I returned to where they were, I realized how lucky is was that there were no causalities, in fact, the tyres had bounced straight into the field .
I recovered the tyres and carried on my journey.
What happened in the accident in Canada, was that the driver went missing, but he would have continued the journey, not realizing that he had lost the tyre off the back of the truck, so far he has not been detected.
