In the first acccident, 80-year old Bob Ruckriegel of Jasper says he was unable to avoid the tire as he was passing another vehicle. FPD says Ruckriegel’s car sustained disabling damage and had to be towed from the scene.
Moments later, a second driver, 48-year old Gaspar Gonzalez of Terre Haute told FPD says he saw the tire and swerved to avoid it. But he says then over-corrected his steering causing the car to go off the south side of the interstate; down an embankment and striking a drainage culvert.
