A Boston woman has been released from the hospital after the car she was driving in was struck by truck tires on the highway in Waltham.
The driver of a pickup truck was arrested after police said two of the truck’s tires came off and hit two cars in Waltham over the weekend.
Police said the truck was traveling southbound on Route 95 when two of its tires dislodged and ended up hitting two separate cars. One of the tires hit a Prius to the left of the pickup truck. The driver and passenger in the Prius were not injured.
The second tire bounced over the concrete median and hit a Mazda going northbound.
The driver in that car, 27-year-old Rose Dedominicis was taken to Lahey Clinic with serious injuries.
Dedominicis’ boyfriend, George Whetstone, said she has a long road of recovery ahead of her.
"No major injuries, no broken bones, but serious concussions, chipped teeth, black eye, lacerations," Whetstone said.
The driver of the pickup truck was arrested and charged with unlicensed operation. He appeared in court Monday.
The cause of the tires coming off the truck remains under investigation.
