Deadly Accident Sends Important Reminder To Check Tires Regularly

The death of a Lubbock mother and her 4-year-old son is a tragic reminder to check your tires.

Christa Barrett and her son Thomas were buried Monday. They were killed last Wednesday on County Road 1200 and Highway 114. DPS Troopers say Barrett's station wagon had a blowout, forcing it to collide with another truck.

Joel Prock, owner of Prock Automotive urges all drivers to check their tires. He says proper maintenance can prevent accidents. "Everyone should keep a gauge in their cars and keep their tires checked, " Prock said.
