Here's a real 'home wrecker'


Imagine sitting in your living room, just cracking a drink open and WHAM!  A tractor-trailer wheel set tears through the wall and lands next to you.  That happened Sunday but fortunately, no one was living in the house at the time.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol responded to the crash and shot these photos, posting them on the patrol's Facebook page.

The story:  A semi truck and trailer was traveling eastbound on Interstate 90 Sunday afternoon.  Near mile marker 62, a set of dual tires separated from the trailer at approximately 60 mph. The tires crossed the median, westbound lanes, the north service road; and after hitting an embankment, launched into the air.  The tires bounced one time before crashing into an unoccupied house where they went through another wall before coming to rest.  No one was hurt and the truck was able to be safely taken to the Flying J truck stop at exit 61.
