TIRE TREAD SEPARATION MAY BE TO BLAME FOR DEADLY CRASH HOLMDEL, NEW JERSEY (July 1, 2015) 

Two people were killed Friday and numerous others were injured when a van carrying 14 people flipped over on Garden State Parkway by Exit 117, according to CBS NEWS. (map) Those who were injured were transported to the Bayshore Community Hospital in order to receive care. The van accident on the toll road is still under investigation. But a woman who is a friend of some of those that were in the van believes that a tire may have popped thus causing the fatal accident that left many with critical injuries. Authorities have been able to identify the two men that died as Charles Derosier and Esperanza Guardado-Quintani. Tire tread separations have been to blame for numerous deadly accidents. A tread separation occurs when a tire's tread separates from the body of the tire. Separations take place most often in large cargo trucks, but they can affect any vehicle including vans. There are many possible reasons why a tire tread may separate from the rest of a tire. But more often than not, manufacturer defect can cause the separation. An error in the chemical bonding process can prevent the tread from sticking to the steel belting section.
