(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Nobody was hurt, but there was major damage after wheels came off a semi and crashed into a house near Rapid City, South Dakota.

According to the South Dakota Highway Patrol, it happened Sunday afternoon. A semi truck with a trailer was traveling on Interstate 90. A set of dual tires separated from the trailer as it was traveling around 60 miles per hour.

Authorities say the tires crossed the median and the opposite lanes of traffic. They also crossed a service road and launched into the air after hitting an embankment. That's when the tires crashed into the house.

Nobody was inside the house. The trucker was able to safely stop at a nearby truck stop.
