Re: Rogue Tire Kills Pedestrian

Re: Rogue Tire Kills Pedestrian

According to some sources, he actually died later at the hospital.

When teenagers fight, car wheels kill people

The Department of Investigation in St. Petersburg has initiated a criminal investigation into the death of a 44-year old St. Petersburg man who was killed with a car tire dropped from the top floors. The case will be investigated for causing death by negligence, Interfax reported.
The tragic incident occurred on the evening of November 8 outside building 72 by Svetlanov Avenue. The man was taken to the Alexandrovsky Hospital with severe injuries (closed head injury, brain contusion, fracture of the lower jaw, contusions and bruises of the head). In the morning of November 11 he died from injuries without regaining consciousness.

There is a video of the incident online showing a man walking through a yard with a plastic bag in his hand. The man was suddenly hit by a car tire with a wheel disk. The wheel landed a few inches from the man's legs and bounced to his head. From the impact, the man fell backwards.

Investigators also have video from surveillance cameras at their disposal, which shows a group of teenagers entering the elevator of the building, where the ill-fated wheel was dropped from. Later, young people came up to the body of the victim, stayed there for a few minutes and left. According to one theory, they threw the wheel from the window of the 11th floor of the house, said Fontanka.ru.

According to Life News, alleged perpetrators are found: it is a couple of teenagers who had already been detained.

According to the online agency, a 15-year-old high school student Darya and a 16-year-old student of a professional school Eric, in the heat of a fight, threw a car tire form the balcony of the 11th floor, which bounced off the ground and killed a 44-yearold resident of the neighboring house Victor Gubin, who was coming back from a grocery store. Gubin was taken to the Alexandrovsky Hospital with a closed craniocerebral trauma, extreme brain contusion and a fractured jaw. He died there the next morning.

According to the guy, he was fighting with his girlfriend and to blow off steam he threw the wheel from the balcony without looking down, said a source in law enforcement. The teenagers were easily identified from the video recordings of surveillance cameras installed in the building.

Re: Rogue Tire Kills Pedestrian

Seems to be legit, but 1), No matter what country you are in, why would you have a tire for a vehicle on the 11th floor? I suppose storage is storage...

But nothing is mentioned about the appearance of light almost immediatly before dude gets clocked. You can clearly see (what I assume is) a streelight, but then another light comes on just before the tire strikes. wIERD?

Seriously? I'm gonna go ahead and assume that the words "wheel disk" in the story refer to the tire's rim. so, yeah, add the height of the fall, weight of the tire, velocity of the tire while falling, pressure in the tire, how much tension was created on impact, and finally, the elasticity of the rubber. add the poor guys' bad luck. According to my calculator, which reads, "error", I'd say it's very plausible he died from that.

Re: Rogue Tire Kills Pedestrian

You have to watch out for those rogue tires. Heard they're on the rise. The other day one was chasing me for several blocks until I was able to hop a fence and elude it.
