Deese called the wreck a “freak accident” and said he’s only seen an incident like that one other time in his nearly 40 years of law enforcement experience.
In the 1980s, a truck tire crashed through the back windshield of a deputy’s patrol car as he helped a stranded motorist on the side of the interstate, Deese said. Nobody was hurt in that case.
“I don’t think it could be more freakish,” he said. “What are the odds of this lady being in that exact spot at the exact time a 360-pound tire basically falls out of the sky?”
Bello’s first-appearance hearing is scheduled for Thursday morning.
