Semi tire blowout crash sends four wheelers flying


No serious injuries were reported after a semi truck’s tire blew, causing a multi vehicle crash that flipped multiple cars. 

The accident happened on Thursday afternoon, March 3rd in Phoenix, Arizona. 

According to 12 News, a semi truck was traveling along the Loop 101 Freeway near 75th Avenue when it experienced a tire blowout. The truck driver then lost control of the rig and struck several vehicles, causing at least two cars to overturn and even partially wrapping one around a pole. 

Miraculously, only minor injuries were reported as a result of the multi vehicle accident, but traffic was delayed on both sides of the freeway as crews worked to clear the wreckage. The incident has since been cleared. 

No further information on the accident has been released.
