However, the video is digitally manipulated, according to .
Rather, the video was created by adding flames to that has already been circulating social media since at least June 2015. In the original video, there is a runaway truck tire; however, there are no flames. The tire without flames does come between a person and a car and does crash into an off-camera object, then smashing back down on top of the hood of the car.
The video has been seen over 300,000 times. However, this video certainly does not show a real flaming tire crashing dangerously close to two people. Snopes noted that the earliest iteration of the video without flames was a sped-up version posted to YouTube by on June 1, 2015, which claimed that the woman in the car suffered a broken wrist. However, there was no additional info.
