TITLE
Tyre and Wheel Incidents
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
United Kingdom
ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
A cement tanker driver was blown 20 feet when a tyre blew. This caused serious bruising to his lower body. Two similar incidents have occurred that did not give rise to injury.

Investigation into these incidents revealed a range of different causes; running the tyre underinflated for a period of time, tyre damage and manufacturing faults.

Further tyre incidents have occurred when wheel hubs have come off their axles. Investigations into these incidents confirmed repair agents did not follow good practice and fit new bolts when removing split hubs to change brake linings.
