Tundra 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The owner was driving at 50 mph while towing, and could not control the vehicle and crashed. The vehicle was bouncing from guard rail to guard rail. When the owners came to a stop the vehicle was still right side up. The vehicle was totaled. Both occupants sustained injuries. The passenger was hospitalized for a week with broken ribs and other internal injuries while the driver suffered from shock and a concussion. However, the driver sustained some injuries from the airbag. Both are in physical therapy and the other therapy treatments. The driver is still suffering from headaches. There were no problems before the wreck. No noticeable problems to the vehicle with handling. There was no wobbling or any indication that this was going to happen.
