Runaway tire causes traffic jam in Futenma

Date Posted: 2006-09-22

A military trailer hauling water in preparation for Typhoon Shanshan lost a wheel in Ginowan City, scaring pedestrians and causing a traffic jam.

The Friday afternoon incident occurred on Highway 330, when a one-meter high tire accidentally broke off the trailer moving from Camp Foster to Futenma Marine Corps Air Station. The tire rolled down the street nearly 170 meters before jumping a sidewalk and stopping.

Officials say an hour-long heavy traffic jam was caused by the trailer, which couldn’t move without the wheel. A beauty shop owner saw the tire break free and roll past her shop. There were no injuries in the incident.
