A 43-year-old man was killed in a single vehicle crash on northbound I-75 last week when his tire blew out causing the vehicle to flip over. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the driver of the car lost control of the vehicle when the tire blew out. The car veered off the road into the shoulder and the driver over-corrected back across the road at which point the vehicle rotated and then overturned. The car came to a final rest blocking northbound lanes of the highway, which had to be shut down for some time. Sadly, the driver suffered deadly injuries at the scene of the accident.
Tire blowouts are one of the top causes of car accidents. These crashes can have a number of causes such as:
- Drop or increase in air pressure
- A large cut in the tire;
- Overloading your automobile
- Mismatched tires
- Balding tires
