In a truly horrifying case of road rage, a loose tire was seen racing and bouncing towards a highway smashing into vehicles.

The nerve wrecking footage was captured by a driver on a New Jersey highway.

The video shows the large tire rolling next to the filmer’s vehicle on Route 440 before bouncing onto the concrete median and heading into oncoming traffic, smashing into a Jeep.

The loose tire from an unknown location was seen as it bounced over a median on the middle of the road, and crashed into a vehicle headed in the opposite direction.

John Rice, the driver of the Jeep, said the tire clipped his wife’s vehicle, which was traveling in front of him, before smashing into his.

“I thought it was going to come right through my windshield,” Allison said.

“Out of nowhere a tire jumps across the median from the opposite direction into our side of the roadway,” said John.

 “Didn’t notice at the time but it struck the rear of my wife’s car and came directly toward the front of my Jeep.”

John didn’t have much time to react and Allison initially feared he was dead.

Fortunately, John wasn’t even seriously hurt in the incident.

New Jersey State Police said the tire appears to have come from a dump truck and they are conducting an investigation to find the vehicle where it originated.
