New Mexico Trucking Crash on I-25: Concrete Mixing Truck Blows Tire and Flips in Las Cruces—Serious Injuries Avoided

All large commercial trucks are dangerous.  News sources are reporting that a large concrete mixing truck blew a tire and flipped on its side.  The large truck blocked Interstate 25 on Friday, September 29, 2017.  Luckily, no one was seriously injured or killed in this trucking crash.  However, that just means this time.  A few weeks ago we posted how a truck driver was killed when his truck blew a tired and crashed into a rock formation.  Other news stories we have reported were when a truck had lost a tire and seriously injured or killed other drivers or occupants.

But it is not just news stories.  Our experienced New Mexico trucking crash attorneys at the Mark Caruso have handled many trucking wreck cases where many victims have been killed due to a tire blow out.  We have also handled many cases involving tankers or other transport vehicles.  These vehicles are dangerous, and the results of negligent conduct can be fatal to those on or around the roads.  If you or a loved one have been seriously injured or killed in a New Mexico trucking crash, please call us for a FREE consultation by dating (505) 308-1556 to learn what your rights may be.

Scary Facts of Concrete Truck Crash on I-25

Las Cruces is one of the busiest trucking hubs in New Mexico.  This is because I-10 and I-25, which both run in opposite north-south and east-west directions, search as a place where trucks can switch directions.  This coupled with the fact that Las Cruces has a large population just means roads are congested and busy where large trucks weave in and hour.  The speed limit on these roads is also high, as they are interstates, therefore traffic also moves very quick.

What make this case scary—and lucky that no one was seriously injured—is because a concrete truck is incredibly heavy.  Anything that it collides with at full speed on an interstate will be pulverized.  The fact that the truck flipped on its side is also lucky that no other vehicle was to the side of it, as that vehicle would be completely flattened.  The large size of this vehicle and weight it has is simply devastating and dangerous.

And this type of trucking wreck should not have occurred!  This was caused by a tire blowout.  Tires are equipment of a large truck which must be checked constantly to ensure the treads are not worn out, separating, or otherwise damaged.  Tires are obviously very important for any vehicle, but for a large commercial truck they are incredibly important because they disperse pressure and weight.

Any Las Cruces or New Mexico trucking crash caused by a tire blowout which results in personal injuries could be fatal and cause serious injuries.  Victims injured when a large commercial truck’s tire explodes should always have an attorney investigate the facts to determine whether the tire was improperly maintained.
