Posted Dec 02, 2019 6:29 PM

A blown tire is being blamed for an accident on Interstate 70 (I-70) that sent a Thornton, Colo., man to the hospital.

A 2016 Honda Odyssey carrying seven people and a dog was westbound on I-70 near the Niles Road exit when a front tire suddenly went flat, according to Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan. The Honda, driven by Anna Perkins, 46, of Thornton, Colo., went into the median and then back across the westbound lanes, coming to rest on the shoulder after striking an unknown object that caused the airbags to deploy, he said. 

The accident occurred shortly after 6:30 a.m. Friday, he added.

William Perkins, 52, of Thornton, Colo., was transported by Salina EMS to Salina Regional Health Center with a hand injury caused by the airbag deployment, Soldan said. 

The Honda was able to be driven from the scene after the blown tire was changed, he added.
