California AA Accident Attorneys

Several motorists were injured after a pickup truck crashed over the center divider and entered oncoming lanes of Interstate 8 Tuesday evening in San Diego.

The crash was reported just after 5 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of the major freeway near Jackson Drive where the westbound traveling truck lost control, struck a nearby vehicle, rolled over the center divider, and smashed head on into an oncoming vehicle, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Emergency responders arrived at the scene to tend to several victims who suffered minor injuries, and take at least one person to a nearby hospital for more serious damage, though it is unclear who those victims were, or what vehicles they were operating in the incident.

A witness had initially told police investigators that the truck may have been racing with another vehicle, but law enforcement authorities later confirmed that tire problems were what led to the accident.

The wreck closed down multiple lanes of Interstate 8 as the truck, which came to rest on its roof, was dragged away from the scene, and investigators went to work to uncover more about the cause of the crash. All lanes were reopened almost three hours later, at 8 p.m.

Residents in the area believe that the impending school year may have also been a factor. “The first day of school is always the toughest day on the freeways and roads,” said one bystander. “Having a blow out on the freeway must have been really scary for the driver and then flipping over onto oncoming traffic.”

Whether or not it is found to be the true cause in this accident, tire maintenance is one of the most important and overlooked aspects of a car’s upkeep. It is essential to maintain proper tire pressure and monitor trend levels, making sure to change tires when rubber levels become too low.

Driving on underinflated or worn out tires leaves your vehicle susceptible to blow outs and dangerous accidents like this that can inflict serious damage to you and motorists around you. If you have been injured in such an accident involving another driver’s poor tire upkeep and have suffered damages, you may be entitled to compensation, depending on the particulars that led to the crash.
