Semi-Trucks Have Accident on 15 Freeway south of the Wild Wash Road, Apple Valley, California

Apple Valley, California — Two big rigs collided on the northbound 15 Freeway on Wednesday night after one of the semis suffered a tire blowout. The incident occurred just south of the Wild Wash Road offramp.

According to reports, the big rig that experienced a tire blowout became disabled and obstructed the slow lane when the second semi crashed into the stalled vehicle.

The driver of one of the semi-trucks ended up trapped inside the overturned vehicle, impaled due to the impact of the collision. Emergency responders requested a helicopter for the critically injured driver’s airlift to a nearby trauma center. Reports say the injured suffered head injuries.

No further details have been provided.

People injured in tire blowout crashes deserve compensation for the injuries they suffer

Several factors could have caused this large truck to experience a tire blowout. Semis travel stretches of miles every day. These trucks require routine maintenance and tire inspections to ensure they stay safe and have excellent air pressure to run the roadways. Unfortunately, we are seeing many tires that are new and properly maintained failing despite the best efforts of the drivers and employers. Steer axle tires are failing across the country because of manufacturing defects.

These tires come straight from the manufacturer to our roadways damaged and defective without anyone’s knowledge until it is too late. These tires cause devastating accidents that result in serious injuries and fatalities. The law holds manufacturers responsible for producing faulty products that make their way to the public when this happens.

A thorough investigation and examination of the tire by trained professionals will lead to answers and justice for the injured.
