Wheels come off Fla. bus, causing it to crash

The bus was on Interstate 95 when a wheel came off.

Video shows a tire coming off a commuter bus before it crashed into another vehicle on Interstate 95.

CBS12 in West Palm Beach reports two tires and rims came off the bus, causing the driver to lose control near the Boynton Beach Boulevard Exit on Thursday.

A camera on the side of the bus shows a wheel spin away, bouncing into the left hand lanes.

The bus crashed into a pickup, then hit a light post. One wheel bounced over the median and hit the hood of a pickup.

The bus driver and the driver of one of the vehicles were treated at a hospital and released.

On Friday, Palm Tran blamed Goodyear, the tire vendor, saying it failed to tighten the rear tires sufficiently.
