Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Trevor Bauer's 2016 McLaren 650S was totaled Tuesday after a tire came loose from an 18-wheeler on Houston's North Freeway and broke through the window of a dealership, where the right-hander's car happened to be stationed.

Cory McCord of KHOU 11 News (h/t Chris Bengel of CBSSports.com) relayed the details of the accident, which did not result in any injuries. After the tire came loose, "it rolled across six lanes of traffic, struck a wall and then went through the glass window before landing on top of Bauer's ride."

The pitcher provided a picture of his car and the shattered window:

Yesterday, if you told me a semi truck would total my Mclaren, I would’ve believed you. If you told me it would happen like THIS? I would’ve said you’re out of your mind. If this isn’t @Mayhem I don’t know what is @Allstate https://t.co/XqdiIgojB8

Per McCord, Bauer's $300,000 McLaren is insured.

Bauer, who was traded from the Cleveland Indians to the Reds in July, went 11-13 with a 4.48 ERA last season. He struck out 253 batters in 213.0 innings.
