    A tire flew off of a vehicle and crashed through the windshield of another vehicle as it was traveling along the New Jersey Turnpike Saturday.

    The unusual accident occurred around 8 p.m. near mile marker 29.6 on the highway as the victim was driving his red pick-up truck through Runnemede, according to reports.

    The tire trapped the driver in the vehicle, but authorities were able to extricate him about 30 minutes after the crash, according to officials.

    Police say the victim only suffered minor injuries. An investigation is underway as authorities are still searching for the car that lost the tire.
