Drivers Fatally Hit While Changing Tires

Changing a tire on the highway presents an inherent danger. Every year there are numerous fatalities and severe injuries that result from crashes that occur when someone is changing their tire on the highway. High speeds and distracted driving contribute to the risk present when changing a tire on the highway.

Recently, a young father was killed while he was changing his tire on the side of the highway. Last year, a rideshare driver was killed when she was changing her tire on the side of the highway. The driver who hit her did not stop and fled the scene.
