Driving I-85 North bound on the morning on 6/15/2015 headed to work when the rear passenger tire blew out causing my 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer to cross over into another lane then back into the lane I was in, spin uncontrollable, all of a sudden the steering wheel started spinning and then the vehicle just shut down, steering wheel locks, the car comes to a stop and slams into a guard rail where I am facing South bound traffic, none of my air bags deploy, I have a neck and back injury that to this day I am still being treated for and my passenger who was a coworker riding to work with me that morning also had a back injury. My vehicle was deemed a total loss by insurance company could not be repaired, lost time from work, still have medical bills, occurring, although I have full coverage insurance but because it was a one vehicle accident there is nothing that can be done about loss wages. Just had these tires put on my truck about 6 months ago, heard about people passing these bad tires on as new tires, don't know if this is the case or not. Don't know why air bags did not deploy, don't know why steering wheel spin then locked up, thank god it was not worse! state trooper said it could have been worse from the way I landed.
