Nothing says nice noon-hour walk through the downtown of a major city like getting nailed by a runaway truck tire.
Police say a large tractor trailer carrying a full load of gravel was eastbound on Main at Walnut Street when the right rear tires came off.
The driver tried to pin the free wheeling tires to the curb. Despite his efforts, the tires continued rolling eastbound to the intersection of Victoria where one tire hit a pedestrian in the leg.
I've asked before and I'll keep asking: when will Hamilton ban through trucks from downtown and have them use our ring freeway system like a normal city?
