Blow out causes nursing home van rollover accident

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a tire blowout is to blame for a nursing home van accident near New Deal this morning.

The van was headed south on I-27 when authorities say the blowout caused the driver to lose control and roll the van.

A wheelchair-bound patient was trapped for a time, but rescuers were able to safely remove that person from the wreck. The patient and driver were taken to University medical Center for treatment.

Their names have not been released.
