Three People Critically Injured After Tire Falls Off Jeep on 23rd Street in Kansas City, Missouri

Kansas City, MO — Three people were critically injured after a Jeep Wrangler lost a tire in the middle of the road. The incident happened Wednesday on 23rd Street.

According to reports, the incident occurred when the Jeep’s back left tire and rim fell off, causing the vehicle to veer off course. The Jeep swerved across the double yellow lines dividing traffic, hitting a Subaru Forester and a Nissan Versa driving east.

Three Nissan occupants were critically injured. The drivers of the Jeep and Subaru were not harmed.

The three injured are in stable condition at a local hospital.

No additional details have been released.

Thoughts on critical crashes caused by loose tires

There are many reasons why a tire might come loose on the roadways. Sometimes, it happens because of poor repair work by maintenance shops. A professional investigation is necessary when tires come loose on the road and cause injury. An investigation can identify the reasons for the tire failure and determine who is responsible, ensuring the injured party is appropriately compensated.

Unfortunately, detached tires happen more often than people realize. We are handling similar incidents across the country. In Illinois, a tire came loose, bounced across the median, and struck oncoming traffic, killing our driver. In another case in Texas, a tire detached and crashed through our client’s windshield, killing him instantly.

When accidents like this happen because of a poor maintenance job or wrong tire installations, the injured individuals deserve compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages resulting from the incident.

May the injured parties fully recover and receive any justice and compensation they deserve.
