Commentary on Jerome Reed Truck Accident in Buttonwillow

When it comes to tire blowouts, folks don't really think about just how complex they can be. While often unavoidable, there are factors where someone can be responsible. For example, maintenance is a common issue that can lead to worn tires. That could be a driver's fault or their employer if the company fails to keep up with repairs.

And while less common, one must also consider the possibility of a manufacturing defect. Not only could that that be crucial for the victim in need of help, it could be an issue putting other lives at risk, as well. Unfortunately, that's not the sort of thing authorities tend to look into. With the proper tools and experience, important information can easily slip through the cracks. Understanding this can be crucial for getting folks the help they deserve. I see no reason why this crash would be the exception to that.
