For broken tyre could we say burst tyre?

Was the tyre on one of the car's wheels at the time ? or was it a spare? Some jeeps have the spare tyre on the back door , is this relevant?

Was he struck by the tyre? at high speed? is he racing?

Was the tire slashed? Was its air valve removed?

Did the tire abrade? Blow out? Did the man get decapitated by a piece of the tire?

Was he able to continue driving after changing the tire, and died after he resumed driving? Did the spare tire's wheel fall off? (not sure if this would qualify as an accident - which you said no too).

Did the either of the driver or passenger own the car?

Did he die of a heart attack? Was he murdered?

Beachbum:
Was he able to continue driving after changing the tire, and died after he resumed driving? FA. Did the spare tire's wheel fall off? Not relevant. (not sure if this would qualify as an accident - which you said no too).

Did the either of the driver or passenger own the car? Not relevant.

Did he die of a heart attack? Was he murdered? No to both.

Shez:
died he get run over while he was trying to change the tyre? No.

did he go to buy a new one and walked in on a stick-up and got himelf shot? No.

BLOOPER:
I realized that one of my previous answers (March 21, 2012 - 11:04 am) may be misleading. Corrected answers below:

Was he driving at the moment? Either this... Was he in the car (while somebody else was driving)? ...or this - when the tyre broke. No to both - for the moment of death. Did he die in a car accident? No.

Did he get hit by the tyre? Any piece of it? Was he struck by anything at all? Did he die within seconds of the tyre breaking? minutes? hours? longer? Was the tyre that broke on the vehicle he was in? Did he die of an external injury?

Did the tyre burst because it was punctured by something? Was it an accident? Did someone contrive it?

Was he hit by the thing that burst his tyre? Was he hit by the thing before he got out of the car? After he got out of the car? While he was getting out of the car?

He is the criminal, right? Is that the FA? Are there any other relevant criminals? Did he accidentally shoot himself? Did he deliberately shoot himself?

Did he shoot himself so he would be taken to hospital and escape the police? Did he shoot himself so he could pretend to be another victim of the man the police were hunting and escape arrest that way?
Did he shoot himself in the wrong place? Did he hit an organ by mistake? Did something prevent him getting medical attention in time so he bled to death? Was he haemophiliac without knowing it?

********SPOILER*******************

This is a true story about a criminal, who had a brilliant and long career in robberies. After one of them, he was escaping in a car, but the tyre broke. He tried to hide in a field of corn, but the police was after him. When he knew he would have been caught, he shot himself.

Thanks for playing.
