Law enforcement authorities reported a traffic accident that left a driver injured in FL-82, after parts from a semi-truck struck the driver’s windshield.

According to the news release by officials, the accident happened when a 40-year-old driver in a Nissan Titan was driving on FL-82 behind a tractor-trailer when the unexpected happened.

Reports say the brake drum and tire thread separated from one of the tractor-trailer’s wheels. The brake drum then bounced off the road and struck the windshield of the Titan as it traveled behind the trailer. The driver in the Titan came to a stop after the collision with the trailer’s brake drum.

EMS arrived to the scene of the crash and administered on-site first aid to the driver of the Titan. EMS reported that the driver was critically injured before taking him to the nearby hospital by ambulance.

The driver of the semi was not injured in the crash and remained at the scene to speak with officials.

Authorities say that the incident is currently under investigation and no other details were released to the public.
