The trailer blew a tire on the driver
Trooper Bock stopped an SUV towing a U-Haul trailer on I-90 near Sturgis, after a call was put out that the vehicle was throwing sparks on the highway. The trailer blew a tire on the driver side rear axle and the driver was intentionally pulling the trailer down the highway with the tire off the rim. The driver advised the tire had blown out about three hours prior and he was unable to get a U-Haul rental store to change the tire. The driver advised he was late for an appointment in Chicago. He was cited accordingly and the unit was detained until U-Haul sent a service truck.
