Faulty Tire Leads to Amputation, Tire Recall

adriana_trevino1 year ago

A lawsuit filed following a San Antonio accident has resulted in the recall of more than 180,000 tires.

About the Tire Recall Related Accident

After two years of bouncing back from a physical and emotional struggle, one woman is speaking up in hopes that no one else suffers the same pain she has had to endure.

According to Fox San Antonio, nearly two years ago along I-37, a young woman was traveling in her SUV when all of a sudden, her vehicle rolled over due to the separation of tread from the tire. The tire malfunction caused the woman to suffer major injuries, including the amputation of one of her arms.

The woman’s subsequent lawsuit prompted the recall of “Capitol Precision Trac II” tires. Sold under the brand, “Hercules”, the investigation resulted in more research and the most recent recall of more than 180,000 SUV sized tires.
