In a scene that looks eerily reminiscent of the Ford/Firestone fiasco of a decade ago, YouTuber Cody Ruggiero was driving along Interstate 985 in Georgia in his 1995 Jeep Cherokee when a tire blew out. The sudden loud thwapping noise of the tire hitting the undercarriage is a clear sign that something is amiss, just before Ruggiero loses control. The Jeep leaves the road and does a soft roll onto its roof, at which point the driver exclaims, “well that was awesome”. Really, the occupants of the car were very lucky that the truck didn’t head into the trees.
Consider this a PSA: Check your tire pressures and inspect for wear!
