RV crash caught on camera in Louisiana

Wasn't quite sure where to post this, so feel free to move the post.

This RV crash happened in my home state of Louisiana on I-10 the other day. Don't know the details yet, but sounds like they had a blow out.
Glad everyone is ok.

Ouch.

Speed was an issue as well, as they passed the truck going considerably faster.

Yes, the article stated the 18 wheeler who recorded the crash was traveling at 65mph and the RV "blew by" him. The limit may have been 75 on that interstate but it doesn't mean you must drive 75. Others will say if you drive 60, others will rear end you. One just needs to find a happy and safe medium, depending on road conditions and what you are driving. Just my opinion.

You can see part of a tire to the left of the MH at the 13 second mark...maybe his.

Yow! That's a bad day in Round Rock for sure. Looks like it rolled as well.

I noticed debris being kicked up from the left side before he left the road too. I'm wondering if a blowout occurred on the left front tire. Something catastrophic happened to cause the driver to lose control, possibly even some medical event, like the driver suffering a heart attack.

At the 10 sec. mark there is some tire debris on the right shoulder. I'm always cautious when I see tire debris. Often you'll spot tire failures in groups along the road.

Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me?

My unscientific hunch, guess, opinion, UN-SWAG is that the debris from one steel-belted tire failure leaves some metal belt shards on/imbedded in the roadway. In any case, when I spot that, I make sure both hands are ON the wheel and my grip a little firmer for a while.
