A tire reportedly fell off another car and smashed through another driver's windshield just before 8 a.m. on Highway 417 near Parkdale.

The driver whose wheel it was has apparently been charged, although the nature of the charges is unconfirmed.

Thankfully, the person whose car was struck suffered only minor injuries, but it could have been so much worse.

In a tragic incident on Wednesday north of Toronto, a pickup truck's wheel struck and killed another driver on Highway 401.
