A couple from Jacksonville, Florida, was travelling on I-75 in Alachua County Florida, when their Ford Explorer experienced a blown tire. The blown tire caused the driver to lose control and swerve sharply resulting in the vehicle rolling over and striking trees.
Thankfully, both the driver and passenger were seatbelted. According to police, they did however, suffer serious personal injuries.
In recent years, numerous product liability lawsuits have been filed against Ford Motor Company alleging that its Ford Explorers tip or roll over too easily. Such cases are expert intensive and are defended vigourously by Ford. Whether the design of the vechicle played a part in causing this accident is unknown.
