Man killed by flying wheels

Two free flying garbage truck wheels killed a man driving to work on Interstate 35W in Minneapolis Friday, reported the Star Tribune.

One of the wheels crossed the highway median and collided with a pickup truck driven by Jerry Ander, 56, of Burnsville, said the Minnesota State Patrol.

The garbage truck driver was identified as Floyd Brunson, 42, of Minneapolis who had been employed by the Waste Management company for 11 years, said a Waste Management spokeswoman.

Lt. Mark Peterson said it was an accident but that they will look at criminal charges.
