i have heard tires rip and start to rip, but i am smart enough to run the other way, not go up to it and bend over and look at it, about the time you get far enough away they blow, so that would be my guess as well, he heard the inner wall starting to give way and went to check it out then ka-blam
maybe he did stab the tire...
