A Photographer Gets a Little Too Close to the Action During a Road Rally in Norway

Photographer Steffen Tronstad was hit right in the stomach by a runaway tire during the Norway Championship Rally. Steffen said the camera on his shoulder blocked his view, so he didn’t see that the tire that came off the rally car was coming right at him. The car was going about 40 miles per hour when the tire flew off. Steffen only suffered minor injuries, including a sore shoulder and a bruise on his stomach. The driver of the rally car is just fine.
