The cause of the crash appears to be a spare tire failure causing the car to lose control, police say. Due to the crash, the driver of the pickup sustained fatal injuries. The car driver was flown to a hospital. No further information is available at this time.

I certainly don't know more about this crash than anyone else reading the public details from authorities. I do know how important it is to maintain spare tires and ensure they can do their job until the driver can get a new replacement tire. But one thing to consider is that manufacturing defects, while relatively less common, can cause crashes like this. Is that something authorities are looking into, or does this particular department not have the right tools for something that complex? I'd hate to think the families affected here aren't getting the answers they deserve.
