Laredo Man Injured in Tire Blowout Accident in Webb County, TX

Webb County, TX -- March 1, 2023, a Laredo man was injured following an accident where a tire blowout led to a rollover.

Preliminary details said that the incident happened at around 5:15 p.m. along I-35 in the area of mile marker 22.

According to information from authorities, a 58-year-old Laredo man was in a Sterling truck traveling northbound on the interstate. It appears a tire blew out, and the truck then lost control. It careened onto the median where it then overturned.

Distinguishing between these potential causes often requires unique experience and equipment to reconstruct the tire and the circumstances that led to it blowing out. Authorities don't often have access to these resources, but maybe authorities here are already working to ensure there are clear answers about what happened here.
