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.

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.

Yes, it kind of bothered me that it looked as though the guy turned into a girl, but then I just thought maybe I couldn't see him right in the shadows there :-)

At first I thought it was a barrel, fallen off a truck (from the dust or whatever flies off of it at impact), but now that you mention it, and after looking at it on YouTube again (bigger picture) I can see that it is a Dual tire rim. There are two truck (pickup truck?) tires on that rim.

That's awesome! I used to have an old Suzuki jeep that had a tendancy to lose a wheel every now and then. We nearly mowed a couple of people down.
