4 injured in New Jersey car accident

According to Ramsey police, four people were injured when a tire came off a car on Route 17 and went through the windshield of a bus. The accident occurred at approximately 7:30 a.m. when a 2009 Lexus lost its tire, including the rim, which bounced over the median and collided with the windshield of a commuter bus.

A passenger on the bus explained that nobody saw it coming, saying, "It happened so fast, but it was sort of like crash, smash right through the windshield like a cannonball."

Car accidents like these may not be common, but it does not change the fact that it can lead to serious injury. A 49-year-old man who was seated behind the driver suffered a heady injury when the tire hit his face. As a result, he was taken by air to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center.

Along with this passenger, two others, as well as the driver, were treated at local hospitals. Although four people were injured in the accident, it could have been much worse as there were approximately 50 people on the bus at the time of the incident.

The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Fatal Accident Investigation Unit, along with multiple police departments, responded to the accident to help the victims and investigate.

No matter if you are driving your own vehicle or are a passenger on a bus, avoiding an accident is not always easy. You never know when another driver is going to make a mistake. In this case, a tire came flying off of a car, which led to four people being injured.
