In my last vehicle (Yukon) I was driving with the windows down when suddenly the passenger side mirror literally exploded.

Pulled over to see what the eff happened and I can hear air coming out of my rear passenger tire.

I drive back down the street and see a screwdriver laying in the street.

Best I could tell, the screwdriver stuck in my tire and was thrown into my mirror.

Scared the crap out me when it happened.

Sorry to hear but this has given me a good chuckle this morning. I mean...a wrench? That's impressive.
