NC to VA to NC leaves me a little…TIRED.

Hi. This is my luck – both good and bad. During my trip back to North Carolina my rear, driver’s side tire literally exploded. I have no idea what happened. I was doing 75mph, as was most traffic, and then all of a sudden I hear this soft ‘whirring’ sound. I was on the phone with Angela when I heard it (yes, I had the nifty handsfree headset on that she bought for me). I told her I needed to get off the phone to hear better and no more than 10 seconds after I hang up there was the sound of a loud BANG!  The car became difficult to control and I guided it to the shoulder on the right.

Keep in mind that it is dark and there are no street lights and traffic is blowing by me at over 80mph. Oh, and I have both of my dogs in the trunk.

I’ll write more about this soon. Click on the images for a larger view of the damage.
