A woman and her young daughter were in an SUV traveling on the southbound 15 Freeway in Rancho Cucamonga when she lost control of the vehicle causing it to flip several times and roll down an embankment off the freeway.
California Highway Patrol, who responded to the accident, believe the incident was caused by a tire blow out. Officers gained access to the passengers trapped inside by using a cable.
The two suffered moderate injuries. They were taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment.
If the tire is determined to be faulty or have a defect, the owner of the vehicle may be able to file a lawsuit against the tire manufacturer. I hope the woman contacts an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney to discuss options on how to proceed.
