Commentary on Arlington Man Rollover Accident on I-35 in Hillsboro
Tire blowouts can be quite a bit more complex than folks realize, as it's not always as simple as just a nail in the road puncturing the tire. For one, while relatively unlikely, tire defects have caused serious wrecks in the past, and they likely will again. Without the right tools and training, though, police alone may not be able to reconstruct the tire such that they can differentiate between a puncture, poor maintenance, and a defect. That's why it's usually best these kinds of accidents are handled by independent, professionals accident reconstructionists.
