“The wheel went through the windscreen of an oncoming car with such force that it broke the passenger seat in half”

A wheel came off a trailer being pulled by a Ford Transit pickup on the N73 (Mitchelstown – Mallow Road) last Friday (April 5th).

The incident occurred at Waterdyke, Kildorerry at 6pm; the vehicle was travelling in the direction of Mallow, according to a Garda spokesperson.

“The wheel went through the windscreen of an oncoming car with such force that it broke the passenger seat in half.” An official explained.

“The road was busy at this time so Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses that may have any information relating to this incident to get in touch.”

“Had there been someone in the passenger seat the consequences could have been fatal.” The spokesperson added.
