Tire Blowout Kills Three in I-10 Accident Outside Faben

An accident on I-10 in west Texas claimed the lives of five people when a minivan experienced a tire blowout, which caused the vehicle to roll and sparked a chain of collisions involving an 18 wheeler truck.

An SUV that was traveling on I-10 behind the minivan attempted to avoid van. As a result, the driver of the SUV lost control of the vehicle and also overturned. An 18 wheeler truck smashed into the overturned minivan, officials said.

Two women and three children occupying the minivan were killed in the tire blowout accident in Fabens.

Three other children were passengers inside the minivan. They were transported to local hospitals with injuries they experienced in the tire blowout accident. Four people in the SUV were also injured, although they were treated at the scene of the accident.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of those killed in this tragic accident.

Just last week, the world watched as officials struggled to identify the victims of a tragic pickup truck accident, which was also related to the vehicles, tire, which experienced tread separation. But despite the prevalence of summer tire blowouts triggered by defects and exacerbated by rising temperatures and highway speeds, some problems with tires continue to prompt recalls and spark blowouts and accidents.

In addition to the deadly pickup truck accident in South Texas last week, Michelin announced a recall of their BF Goodrich tires, among other brands, which could have defects that can result in separation and subsequent accidents.
