Johnson sustained incapacitating injuries in the crash and was apparently the only one injured. Some may think that's all there is to know, and maybe it is. Tire blowouts aren't always avoidable. It's not like the driver can see a nail from 100 yards out. But as simple as tire blowouts can be, they can also be incredibly complex.

Manufacturing defects, for example, have caused deadly wrecks before, and they no doubt will again. It's up to investigators to have the tools and experience to consider all of these possibilities so nothing slips through the cracks. My hope is authorities did just that and got those affected by this crash answers about what happened.
