yah, that stuff happens. i.e.
Autopsy: Man dies after over-inflated truck tire explodes - Chicago Breaking News

Truck tires are also many times more dangerous when they explode than a car tire given the increase in volume and psi (which equals much more stored energy). I think truck tires are like 52+ liters at 100+ PSI, and there's a lot of them on a truck, go figure.
