Default I Think this is why my Car Had That Accident.

It took a while for me to post this...

I had an accident a couple months back On Route 2. Going around 60mph and all of a sudden the car jerks and shakes, then theres a few "breaking noises" and I see the tire shredding and the rim crunching in half. Got out and the rim was HOT and smokin. I need this part (pictured below), a Caliper, and possibly a brake fluid line. I dunno what the part below is. Thats what I need help with and what should I expect to pay at a junkyard?

I've always heard it referred to as a steering knuckle. FSM just calls it a knuckle.

Default bad wheel bearing?

How long did you let your bad wheel bearing go? Sure looks like a wheel bearing self-destructed, and I've driven with loud wheel bearings for quite a while, and after replacing, and autopsying it, figured I could have gone a lot longer.. Even if it wasn't a wheel bearing, and something else failed, you had to have some kind of warning. Glad you were not anywhere near my wife and daughters at the time of failure.
And yes, steering knuckle.. a JY will probably give you that whole corner of the the car for about 50 bucks or less..
