Watch shocking moment lorry’s tyre explodes, sending it crashing through central reservation towards oncoming traffic | The Sun

THIS is the shocking moment a lorry's tyre explodes, sending it crashing through the central reservation – and straight into oncoming traffic.

Seconds later, the car-carrying trailer catapulted two Teslas into the opposite lanes, with one Tesla model sliding under another HGV.

The potentially deadly incident took place on the M3 between Hook and Fleet on January 10 this year – but thankfully, no one was hurt.

The eyewitness who captured the crash on their dashcam said: "I was travelling on the M3 on Tuesday and about to overtake the lorry when the tyre blew out, and it swerved across the lanes and crashed through the barrier onto the other side."

Recovery crews from Hartley Wintney, Fleet, Rushmore and Basingstoke attended the scene, resulting in huge delays on the motorway.

Posting on their Facebook page, Fleet Fire Station said: "We’re sure many of you were stuck on the M3 last January 10.

"Just before 2pm, along with Hartley Wintney Fire Station and Rushmoor Fire Station, we attended a complex incident involving a jack-knifed HGV carrying several Teslas.

"The HGV transporter was travelling north, slid across and through the central reservation barrier, catapulting 2 Teslas into south bound traffic, one Tesla under another HGV.

"Luckily, there were only minor injuries from the three drivers involved. Very lucky for all involved."

People were quick to comment on TikTok.
