Woman Dies After Truck Tire Crushes Roof Of Car

A Colorado woman died on Sunday after a truck tire crushed the roof of her car on I-25 north of of 144th Avenue.

The Longmont Times-Call cites police in reporting that a semi-truck traveling south on the highway lost two of its tractor's rear tires and wheels, on of which bounced over the median and hit the roof of a north-bound Toyota Camry.

KUSA reports that the tire crushed the car's roof, killing the driver, a 35-year-old woman from Colorado, on impact.
