Two Teens Killed in Spotsylvania auto accident

Two Spotsylvania County teens were killed on August 21st when their Ford F-150 overturned and crashed into a tree. They were both wearing their seatbelts so I suspect the roof crushed down on them when it rolled over. This would fit some of the recent article regarding inadequate roof support. This is sometimes called inadequate rollover protection. What are your thoughts.

Dangerous tires - Have your tires passed their expiration date?

Posted by John Harris on Mon, Nov 17, 2008 @ 09:20 AM

http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=4826897

A friend of mine told me about an ABC report on dangerous tires.  The tire manufacturers are very unfriendly to consumers.  We as consumers do not know that tires have an expiration date.  Once the expiration date passes the tires become dangerous and are subject to tread separation even if they are new and have lots of tread.  Evidence of tread separation can be seen along the highway, especially I-95, in the form of tire treads that have come off.  At road speed cars and trucks become unstable when a tire suddenly blows up.  Many accidents are caused by such an event.  Losing control at road speed leads to many severe injuries and fatal wrecks.  As an attorney, I felt an obligation to pass this information along.
