Faulty Tire Causes Indianapolis Truck Accident

An accident yesterday evening between a dump truck and an SUV seriously injured. According to a story published by the Indianapolis Star, a faulty tire on one of the vehicles involved may be to blame for the crash.

Reports show that at around 6 p.m. on Tuesday evening, a dump truck driver was traveling along Massachusetts Avenue, on the northeast side of Indianapolis, when the front left tire of the truck blew out. The blowout caused the truck’s driver to lose control of the vehicle and crash into a Ford SUV.

It took rescue crews roughly half an hour to extricate the dump truck driver from the wreckage of the Indianapolis Truck Accident. Upon being freed, he was rushed to a local hospital after complaining of neck and hip pain. The driver of the SUV was uninjured in the crash.

It is important to check the tread of a vehicle’s tires often to ensure the tread is adequate, as worn tires can lead to tire blowouts. It also helps to check the make and model of your tires for recalls, considering thousands of accidents have been attributed to faulty or recalled tires.

The Indiana Personal Injury Lawyers with Stewart and Stewart Injury Lawyers suggest that anyone who has been involved in a motor vehicle collision caused by a faulty tire to contact an experienced attorney immediately to discuss your legal options.
