This father could have lost his own son’s life to a suddenly detached 22.5-inch trailer tire that crashed directly into his Peugeot car. Read the gist here!

As for us here at Naijauto.com, we would tag the man featured in this update as the “Luckiest father in the world”. Wonder why?

Well, because a suddenly detached 22.5-inch Heavy Goods Vehicle tire crashed into his white Peugeot car somewhere near Leyland in Lancashire, England.

The detached tire flew over, shattered the windscreen together with the roof and landed right in between the passenger and driver seats, completely crushing the attached empty “child seat” lying at the back of the car which belongs to the man’s son.

The Lancashire Road Police department made a tweet about this incident saying;

"The driver of this car is the luckiest person in the world right now. This tyre detached from an HGV on the M6 at jct28 crossed the central barrier & struck an oncoming vehicle.

How they got it to the shoulder and got out is beyond us. Thankfully minor injuries.

The driver’s young son wanted to come out with Dad. Thankfully he was unable to take him, but it doesn’t bear thinking about what would have happened had his son been in this car seat."

>>> That's the story of the luckiest father in the world. What about the luckiest mother? Definitely this girl! Container falls on Kenya woman's car moments she stepped out with her baby

We can’t even imagine if the had agreed to take his son with him and have the boy strapped to the back seat?

He is indeed the luckiest father in the world!
