Richard G's Experience

Experience description:   

In June or July of 1977 at approximately 5:30 P.M. my wife and I were driving South East at approximately 75 to 80 miles per hour approximately five or six miles North West of Wild Horse, Cheyenne County, Colorado on US 287.  All of a sudden I observed a curve that would be coming up in two or three miles and the rental care we were driving in started around a fairly sharp curve to the left.  The right rear tire blew and we went off the road and rolled the car several times.  About sundown I observed my wife and I hovering above the accident and saw the ambulance crew working on us on the ground.  Suddenly I was back driving about two or three miles before the curve.  I pulled over and checked the right rear tire and found the tread was separating from the tire.  I changed the tire and continued on the trip to Lamar, Colorado without incident.
