Tire failure Causes Vehicle Rollover, Sending Driver, 3 Children to the Hospital

Driver and her eleven year old daughter were airlifted from the scene with “non-life threatening injuries” according to Indiana State Police.

June 25, 2018-An Indianapolis woman and her 11 year old child were airlifted from the scene of a vehicle rollover on I-65 in Jasper County according to Indiana State Police. According to the report, “at approximately 7:50 p.m., yesterday, June 24, 2018, evening, a 2003 GMC Yukon, was south bound in the right lane on I-65 when the Yukon had a tire failure causing the driver, Teshawana Crisler, 40 of Indianapolis, to overcorrect. The Yukon went off the roadway into the center cable barrier and rolled over.”

An 11 year old child was ejected from the vehicle “due to not having her seat belt on” and was airlifted to Saint Vincent’s Hospital in Indianapolis according to police. Police describe the 11 year old’s injuries, as well as those of Teshawana, as “non-life threatening.” Teshawana Crisler was airlifted to Christ Advocate Hospital in Oak Lawn. A 3 and 4 year old were taken to a local hospital in Rensallaer “to be checked out” according to the statement.

Indiana State Trooper Curtis Jones investigated the incident. Trooper Jones stated, “Wearing your seat belt is important no matter what position you are sitting in a car; in Indiana this is a law. Injuries to [the child] could have been lessened had she buckled up.”

  1. It’s also worth mentioning that if the tire hadn’t failed this might not have happened. Indiana used to have vehicle safety inspections…now we have useless emissions inspections! I’ve been lucky to avoid a truck blowing a tire right next to me at 70mph.All vehicles should be subject to random safety inspections at weigh stations.
