November 3, 2020

The California Highway Patrol identified the man killed by a flying tire on Highway 101 in Paso Robles on Thursday as Peter Mays, 82, of San Miguel.

Shortly before 3 p.m., a fifth wheel was headed southbound when a tire broke off and flew into northbound traffic. The tire then crashed into the front window of a black Jeep Grand Cherokee killing Mays, who was sitting in the passenger seat.

Multiple crashes occurred in the area within minutes.

The crashes remain under investigation.


So sad. My heart and prayers go out to his family who must still be in shock.
