Did Tire Blowout Cause Highway 86 Rollover Crash?

A tractor trailer rollover crash near the Highway 86 checkpoint caused delays at the inspection area last Monday. The tractor trailer was traveling south on the highway when one of its tires blew, sending debris into the air.

The debris struck another tractor-trailer, which caused the driver to swerve and crash into a parked passenger bus. The tractor-trailer rolled over, coming to rest on its side. Despite the severity of the rollover crash, no one was seriously injured. The inspection checkpoint experienced delays because Border Patrol agents had to respond to the crash.
