Blown Tire Causes SUV to Crash
Nine people were injured, four of them critically, when an SUV crashed in Brevard County, Florida. Investigators believe a blown tire may have caused the accident. According to Kathy Hancock, a truck driver traveling behind the Chevrolet Blazer on I-95, the SUV was suddenly "turning somersaults" and that "bodies were flying everywhere." At least two people were ejected from the single vehicle crash.
There are several factors that can cause a tire to blow out. If the tires are over- or underinflated, heat and pressure can build up causing the tire to fail. Debris on the road, high rates of speed, and tire defects are also possibilities that can lead to a blow out.
Every year hundreds of people are injured and many killed due to a blown out tire. These blowouts not only inflict injury and death on those in the vehicle, but many times nearby vehicles will also be involved when someone loses control.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving an SUV, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced injury lawyer in your area.
