Bald Tires Cause of Crash, Injuries

Bald
tires have been determined to be the cause of a crash in Radnor, Pa. according
to investigators.  The motor vehicle accident
injured two teenagers hit by the car while waiting for a school bus last month.  One underwent surgery on both his head and
leg and remains hospitalized.

Photographs
released of the tires on the car show missing tread on most of the tires and exposed
metal wires beneath the rubber.  The
driver of the vehicle, Tamisha Johnson, has been charged with reckless driving
and reckless endangerment.

Proper
tire maintenance is an important safety function in maintaining your motor
vehicle.  Under inflation of tires is the leading cause of tire failure
and can lead to damage and vehicle failure causing catastrophic injuries to the head,
neck or chest, paralysis or other serious injuries.  In other cases, improper tire maintenance can
lead to accidents
causing death.  You should refer to your
vehicle’s owner manual and consult with an authorized tire retailer for advice
on checking your tire pressure or replacing tires.
