Blown Tire Causes Wreck Near Memphis

A blown tire resulted in a one-vehicle accident near Memphis on Friday night but the driver escaped with only minor injuries.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the crash occurred at 6:30 p.m. on March 29th, approximately two miles east of Memphis on Highway 136.

Hannah M. Smith, 19, was westbound in a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer when the tire blew, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle. The SUV ran off the left side of the roadway and struck an embankment. The vehicle sustained extensive damage.

Smith was transported by Scotland County Ambulance to Scotland County Hospital in Memphis for treatment of minor injuries.

The Patrol was assisted at the scene by the Memphis Police Department and the Scotland County Sheriff's Office.
