Evidence that an injury or death did not have to happen may be no more apparent than when you hear about an unusual accident. It's clear, except for a convergence of bad timing and mystifying errors, the tragedy never had to occur. A bizarre truck accident, not unlike the ones just described, recently took place in Fresno.
A 22-year-old California woman died, after she was struck by a tire that came loose from a semi-truck on Highway 99. Investigators said the immense tire rolled across the road and smashed into the victim's Toyota Corolla, crushing the driver's side and roof.
