Weird things can happen. I've had two similar incidents, one of which could have been fatal. My headset bearing seized on one of my bikes, locking the wheel in a turn (it happened on a 1 year old bike, bearing was defective). My rear wheel locked up suddenly once when one of the locknuts came loose on the axle and seized the bearings on one side of the hub. Fortunately I wasn't going fast and didn't go down, but it caused a long walk home. That one was my error, I'd packed too much grease in the hub.
