Tire Blowout results in fatal South Florida car crash

firestone-tire-blowoutA tire blowout resulted in a fatal accident involving a day laborers’ van. One man was killed and five others were injured on Interstate 95. In the truck were day laborers who resided in Fort Pierce, Florida. They were headed to work at the time of the accident. One of the men, who was not wearing a seat belt, died at the scene. The other occupants of the vehicle were transported to various local hospitals.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the men were in a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan headed south in a construction zone when the left rear tire tread separated and the vehicle lost control. The van proceeded to crash into a retaining wall and flipped over, ejected one of the men who was not restrained by a seat belt. The accident result in massive delays for traffic on I-95.

The consequences of a defective tire on the highway cannot be overstated. Vehicles experiencing blowouts at high speeds are prone to flipping and if the occupants are not restrained by a seat belt, there is a strong possibility that they could be ejected from the vehicle. The tire pressures should always be at the recommended settings. Also, one needs to be careful when buying retreads because of the possibility that the retread may separate from the tire.

This case is another tragic example of the catastrophies that can result from defective tires. If the defect was preventable, legal action may be filed against the manufacturer.
