Both vehicles apparently were eastbound at the time. As police investigated the incident, the tire that caused the scare was in a grassy area in front of a home at 35 Riverside Drive.

Police said no one was hurt. It was not known whether any tickets were issued.

Both drivers declined to comment at the scene.

The dump truck that lost the tire bore no company markings. The disabled vehicle was towed away about 30 minutes after the incident occurred.
