Whittemore Faulty Tire

Whittemore, IA (KICD)–Nobody was injured after a tire came off of a semi.

Barbara Henning of Windom was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban pulling a 2004 StarCraft camper eastbound on Highway 18 near Whittemore. John Brecht was driving a 2000 Kenworth semi-tractor pulling a 1998 triple axle H and H trailer westbound on 18. According to Henning, the tire was coming off and then struck the camper she was towing in the left front.

The Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office says the accident was caused by the wheel assembly coming off the trailer and striking the camper.
