    How does a blowout on a trailer start a fire and/or cause a wreck?
    The driver screwed up.

    Especially since it's titled Arnold wreck and Lucar is just posting random company accidents...think he got confused on the post and decided to just show random photos with nothing to do with original specific topic.

    Actually, you can manage a blow out of a tire or even two tires on the same axle without wrecking. It's the steers that get people killed or hurt if you are not attentive to it.

    All dragging brake can heat up the tire till it catches on fire or even a hub bearing going don't be so quick to blame the driver when the trlr could have just come from the shop
