A caravan was virtually torn in half when it collided with a lorry on the busy M6 motorway.
It's thought the saloon car towing the Swift Challenger caravan swerved to avoid hitting a stray tyre on the carriageway.
But in taking the evasive action, the vehicle seems to have struck an HGV in the middle lane.
The crash, which happened at 10.50am on Monday, closed one carriageway by junction 13 of the M6 near Stafford while rescue crews cleared the motorway of debris.
A spokeswoman for Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "A crew from Stafford attended the scene at 10.57am.
"The caravan was totally destroyed.
"No one was injured and crews left at 11.08am."
Paramedic Shaun Looker, from West Midlands Ambulance Service, tweeted pictures of the wrecked £17,000 caravan which had the rear wall ripped off in the crash.
He posted: "Caravan V HGV.
"Caused by stray tyre on carriageway.
"Thankfully no injury."
