Two people were killed in a three-car wreck in McLean Texas. The incident occurred around 8:25 a.m. Monday July 16 when police believe 25-year-old Jimmy Franco blew a front tire out on Interstate 40. Francos vehicle then crossed the center median through a cable barrier and into oncoming traffic. Francos vehicle then struck the vehicle of 84-year-old Barbara Julie Seibert killing her at the scene. Franco was ejected from his truck and also died at the scene.
Site of the Accident
I think most understand there may be an accident claim against the driver whose vehicle lost a tire and allegedly veered out of control. However because other potential causes of action exist a thorough investigation should take place to address the lost tire. Owners are responsible for normal wear-and-tear of components on their vehicles but an investigation would be able to categorize this deterioration and pair it with normal manufacturer life expectancies. If the rates do not match up further investigation must occur.
