Willington – Loose Wheel Causes Highway Accident
Last Friday evening, an accident occurred in I-84 when a wheel came off a pickup truck.
The left rear wheel of a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado fell off the truck while it was traveling on the center lane in the eastbound side of I-84 crossing Willington at 9:26 p.m. The driver of a 2016 Honda CRV, the vehicle behind the pickup truck, was unable to avoid the loose wheel and hit it. Fortunately, no injuries were reported in the accident. No other details about the incident have been released by authorities.
Road accidents caused by defective vehicles have happened in the past. And while in this case the cause of the accident has yet to be determined by authorities, it’s important to note that in accidents similar to this, particularly when people are injured, car companies can be made liable for damages.
