Phoenix, Arizona—On Monday, Lee T. Holt, a 36 year-old man from Buckeye, Arizona, was ejected from the RV he was driving on the Loop 202 freeway in Central Phoenix. Unfortunately, Mr. Holt died of his injuries before he arrived at the nearby Maricopa Medical Center.

The RV was westbound on the 202 near 32nd Street when Mr. Holt lost control, apparently the result of a tire blowout. The RV then collided with freeway light poles and struck the median.

Six other passengers in the RV were also injured, including 9 year old Hayden Holt, who was the most seriously injured passenger. Hayden is hospitalized at Phoenix Children's Hospital in serious condition.

Defective tires are responsible for thousands of car accidents every year. An investigation should determine whether or not a defective tire caused this accident.

We extend our sincere condolences to the family and frinds of Mr. Holt, and we wish Hayden and all the other injured passengers complete and speedy recoveries.
