What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

I-95 Accident Injures 3, Kills 1

Posted on October 30th, 2012 No Comments

Defects in tires can lead to serious accidents and injuries. When a car has a malfunctioning part, the safety of the people inside that motor vehicle could be compromised. Tire defects can lead to accidents that are caused by tire blowouts, broken axels, and tire explosions.

The importance of tire safety was portrayed this weekend when a car accident occurred due to a tire blowout. On Saturday morning in St. John’s County, a pickup truck flipped over on I-95, injuring three individuals and killing one. The 22-year-old driver of the vehicle was driving south on the highway around 11 a.m. when the left rear tire of his Dodge Ram blew out.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the driver of the truck then lost control of the vehicle and drifted towards the westbound side of the highway. The truck, carrying six people including the driver, rammed into several trees before flipping over. A 22-year-old Middleburg man was in the bed of the truck when the accident unfolded, and became airborne when the vehicle overturned. The man struck numerous trees, and was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

The driver of the truck was wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident, but still sustained serious injuries as a result. He was transported to Orange Park Medical Center. Two of the three passengers in the cab of the truck received minor injuries, and one was unharmed.
