Airplane Tire That Fell From Sky and Hit a Car on the Schuylkill Was Actually Just a Truck Tire

On Monday morning, reports surfaced indicating that an airplane tire had fallen out of the sky and landed on a car on the Schuylkill near the University Avenue exit. Then, there were reports of a second tire falling from the sky and putting a hole in the roof of a Grays Ferry building. Turns out they’re just truck tires. You’re not in Donnie Darko. This isn’t Breaking Bad. The sky isn’t falling. [NBC Philadelphia]
