New video just into the CBS12 Newsroom shows the dramatic moments on I-95 when a Palm Tran bus lost two tires and crashed.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the tires and rim just fell off the bus, causing the driver to lose control. The crash happened just before 6 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-95 near the exit to Boynton Beach Boulevard.

A camera on the side of the bus recorded the moment when the wheel spun away from the bus. It bounced into the left hand lanes.

The driver of the lost control and crashed into a pickup truck traveling in the left hand lanes. The bus then hit a light post which fell into the southbound lanes of the highway. The wheel from the bus bounced over the median and hit the hood of a pickup truck.

The bus driver and the driver of one of the vehicles were treated and released from the hospital with minor injuries.
