    I have heard that the accident involved a Mercedes Benz suv. We own a similar Mercedes and have recently learned much about the tires that come with these suvs. If there is any sign of a tire failure in this accident please contact me and i will pass on what I know. We came very close to a similar accident and i am very sorry for this family’s loss. Bill Ward, #581-7135
