Last updated on Thursday, August 22, 2013

(SALEM) - According to Salem Police Officer Tim Miller, it was an unusual traffic incident which could’ve been serious, even deadly.

According to the Leader Democrat, the accident happened Tuesday around 3:45 p.m. on Old State Road 60.

As Katherine Cole, of Campbellsburg, drove along, a wheel flew off her 1995 Chevy Astro Star.

The wheel, which broke off from the center cap, says Miller, hit a Mustang parked in the Quick Lane parking lot shattering the back window.

According to Miller, fortunately, nobody was in the vehicle and the incident didn't take place on a busier roadway.

Miller credited Cole for controlling the vehicle and getting it off the roadway and into a parking lot safely.
