This case involves a man who was driving his heavy duty truck with his wife as the front seat passenger. After they had gone three miles, the plaintiff’s truck tire had a partial tread belt detachment. The truck veered off to the right and went off the road. The truck then went through a median and across an adjacent service road, where it went into the soft dirt beyond the service road. The truck then tripped and rolled over about 2 times. The plaintiff’s wife was not wearing a seat belt and she was ejected from the truck and thrown about 20 feet into the air. She landed about 50 feet from the truck. She suffered major head trauma and was permanently injured as a result of the accident. The plaintiff remained in the truck as it rolled numerous times and he suffered serious bodily injuries, including bruises and broken bones.
