Singapore: A tire was spotted free-roaming at Tanah Merah Coast Road almost hitting a cyclist along the process.

In the dashcam footage, a tire was captured on camera suddenly coming loose from a truck travelling at Tanah Merah Coast Road. The tire dislodged from the truck, and started rolling towards the left lane towards a cyclist that was travelling on the cycling lane.
