the I-40 Westbound was closed from about 3 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. near Albuquerque, New Mexico

a dual set of wheels along with a rim came off of an 18 wheeler, the wheels hit a pedestrian who was walking east on the shoulder of the westbound lanes.

Motorist Kimberly Brumlow witnessed the crash. She said that the tires flew straight at the pedestrian, hitting him head on and sending him flying into the air.

Brumlow said that she followed the truck for about 8 or 9 miles before the driver stopped. She said that the truck was leaning to the side because of the missing tires, but she did not believe that the truck driver realized what had happened.
