Minibus tyre blowout

Three people seriously injured

M3 Southbound BasingstokeAt least two people were thrown from a minibus following a suspected tyre blow-out on the M3. Three were seriously injured. Seven others, including two children, were injured.

The vehicle, carrying 10 people, crashed on the southbound carriageway between junctions five and six at Old Basing on 24 July 2013.

Tyre blowouts are widely considered to be unpredictable, but a TyrePal system can give advanced warning. A tyre invariably overheats before it blows out and the TyrePal system detects the overheating and warns the driver before the blowout or a tyre fire occurs.
