A wrench in the gears

Thursday afternoon I was driving my wife to the seniors home to cook supper for the residents, with plans to go into Saskatoon for a Toastmasters meeting that evening. We had gone less than half a mile down the gravel road that leads to the highway when were startled by a loud clattering from the right rear wheel. I pulled over and stopped, jacked up the car at that corner, removed the wheel and discovered the cause of the racket:
How did that happen? How long had that wrench beenh lying on the road? Is this even possible? Could anyone drive that wrench into the sidewall of a tire if he tried? Now everybody thinks I lead an interesting life, but I would prefer some other kind of interesting.
The pictures were taken by Nick Fiesel, the service rep at Saskatoon Hyundai where I bought two new tires yesterday. People in the shop came by, one by one, to take a look and more pictures were taken. I expect all their friends have seen them by now.
There was also some damage to the interior of the wheel well. So if anyone wants to claim this 5/8″ combination wrench, I will let it go for only $200.00 (the cost of my insurance deductible).
