LUDLOW, California — Martha Madrigal, 51, of Keller, Texas was killed and four passengers injured early Saturday morning after the left, rear tire blew out on the gold 2000 Chevy Tahoe Madrigal was driving eastbound on Interstate 40 just west of Kelbaker Roadd, according to a press release issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department.
Madrigal lost control of the Tahoe about 1 a.m. at which point the vehicle rolled over multiple times in the center divider. Madrigal was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:12 AM. The four injured passengers who were riding in the Tahoe were taken by paramedics to area hospitals for treatment of undisclosed injuries.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.
“Rollover crashes can take place for a variety of reasons including a flat tire, but police must investigate this crash to determine if there were any other contributing factors that may have caused the accident,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “Other factors to be considered include product liability of the tire manufacturer, negligence by an automotive repair facility that replaced the tires or poor road maintenance.”
