Yet another tire blowout accident resulted in a rollover accident in San Antonio that killed the driver of an SUV, who lost control of the vehicle when the tire failed.

According to police the 21-year-old man, identified as David Francisco Flores, was traveling southbound, on Loop 410 near Old Pearsell Road on the morning of July 27,2012, when the his vehicle experienced a tire blowout, which caused the SUV to spin out of control.

The vehicle left the roadway and rolled multiple times before coming to a rest on its roof. The young man was tapped inside the SUV. Emergency personnel freed him from the wreckage of the tire blowout accident in San Antonio and he was transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries he endured in the car wreck.

Authorities said he succumbed to injuries he experienced as a result of the rollover accident and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Although police are still investigating the scene of the car accident in San Antonio, they do not believe speed was tied to the car wreck.

Rollover accidents caused by tire failures seem to be more frequent as summer temperatures are on the rise. The heat combined with tire defects and highway speeds can be a deadly combination, causing drivers to lose control of a vehicle, unexpectedly, in mere seconds.
