Why does the lady put the nozzle back on the pump, and run away?

I think to stop it from dribbling gas out, and maybe to first shut off the automatic latch that he had set.....but I think she ran into the "store" to get help (she may not have had a cell phone, or feared using it).

. What was that thing that hit him? Looked like a racing tire.
Yep, pretty sure it's a tire.

Go to YouTube and look at it and stop it a few times as the tire comes in, you can see that it is 2 tires on a wide (double axel?) rim.
It's a rear dual tire, off a semi-trailer truck.

I figured it was something of the sort. I have seen a similar sized tire on some monster dual axle pickups too, about waist high. In either case, that had to hurt :-)
Yeah I think you can get an optional axle extension on the ford trucks to carry a dual rear setup... I concur with your hurting statement... it looks pretty bad. i surprised he survived.

I watched it fairly often until I realized that this was NOT him running around the car at the end, but the neighboring person pumping gas....running to get him help.

That neighboring person is a red headed she with glasses.
