Daphne said she doesn't know what caused the issue with the tyre.

Dashcam footage shows the scary moment a tyre flies off a motorist’s car while they drive down the motorway.

Daphne, a holiday park employee from Maastricht, the Netherlands, says she had just changed her winter tyres to summer tyres a few days earlier and that they should have been in good condition. 

The police arrived and retrieved the tyre from the road to avoid it causing any accidents. No one was injured in the incident and Daphne's car was okay apart from needing a few minor repairs.

Daphne said: "We don't know why it flew off. I changed to my summer tyres a few days before.

"Police and help were there within five minutes. I didn't call anyone. They saw it on cameras.

"The car was damaged so a few parts had to be changed, but the tyre is now on my car."
