Thanks, I wasn't in town. I was in Arkansas, which is 4 hours away from where I live, for thanksgiving.
This happened Friday on my way back to Oklahoma.

They might have been not tightened or over tightened.

So what happened is that I heard something exploding and the car was sliding but traction was trying to hold it, it was hard to control the wheel and the car since the left tire wasn't moving but all three tires were okay. Didn't break hard at all because that would make us just spin and spin, finally stopped at the shoulder of the highway and opened my door looked at it and my first reaction was "OH MY GOD" finally came out of the car and looked at it, car was sitting on the tire like the pictures, thanks to the fender for holding the tire, all lug nuts were not there and not near the car (couldn't find them). It could have been so much worse if the tire just flew away. Thanks God the tire stuck in there and even held the car by a paper width of the ground. What you see on the body is because of the rubber hitting the body. The tire is a total loss and the bumper will need to be replaced. Body will need to be buffed out, also the hub might need to be replaced, hopefully this is it.
