Nathanial Perkins Killed in Loose Debris Accident in Rutherford County, TN

With an older car like the one described here, it's entirely possible this was just a worn down vehicle that was bound to break down at some point. However, with older Mustangs--even relatively new Mustangs--there are a lot of people that customize the vehicle. That makes me wonder if this accident had less to do with the age of the vehicle and more to do with parts that were either installed improperly or were themselves defective. Quite frankly, this isn't the sort of thing authorities tend to look into on their own. That's why my hope is that steps are taken to ensure experienced professionals look into this and get this victim's loved ones some answers.
