Car damaged by blown out tire from another vehicle near Morgan Tuesday

The Redwood County Sheriff’s Office reports a car damaged by a blown out tire on another vehicle Tuesday afternoon.

It happened at about 3:30 p.m. on County Road 2, approximately half a mile north of Morgan. A 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Kelly Marie Mesjarlais, age 58, of Morton, was driving south when her vehicle encountered a 2015 Mack semi-truck driven by Darren Dennis Sonnek, age 44, of Mankato.

Sonnek’s truck had a rear tire on the trailer blow out, and the rubber shredded. Portions of the shredded tire stuck the Tahoe, damaging the front driver side bumper.

The value of the loss was not determined, and neither driver was injured.
