    plz tell me how to use "hurtle"

    hurtle: to move very fast, especially in what seems a dangerous way.
    Ex:
    The truck came hurtling towards us.
    The explosion sent pieces of metal and glass hurtling through the air.

    I don't understand the use of this word in these examples. could you explain me how to use it. Thanks

    In both cases, an accident could result- if the truck is hurtling towards you, it may hit you.

    .. 'an accident could result - if the truck is hurtling towards you, it may hit you' because it's moving very fast and is beyond anyone's control.
