A driver narrowly escaped injury in South Windsor on Thursday after a tire hit his or her vehicle on Interstate 291 and caused damage.
Firefighters were called to I-291 around 6 p.m. after getting a report of a crash.
When crews arrived, they said they learned a tire had come loose from an unknown location and hit a vehicle traveling westbound.
The driver was not injured and declined medical treatment on scene, firefighters said.
I-291 westbound was down to one lane for a period of time, but has since reopened.
Connecticut State Police are investigating.
