Happens frequently. The cap blows and inflicts a lot of collateral damage. This is why it’s very dangerous to tailgate a truck... retread blows and throws a 50 pounds of rubber debris everywhere.

Yep, n that’s why I go out of my way to not loligag (is that spelled right?? Lol) beside a truck while either in my CMV and especially my personal vehicle. Some of my friends get irritated when I tell them to pass the trucks quickly if they must and do it in the left….seen what blown tires can do.

I actually saw the blowout and tread when quite a ways up in the air before landing to earth again….
