Heat causes Highway 29 to buckle, nearly causing accident

A car was launched into the air by a patch of uneven pavement while traveling on Highway 29 earlier this week.

The roadway defect is believed to be caused by intense summer heat that caused it to buckle, forming a bump. Many drivers who went over it slowly received some damage to their cars.

One driver, who may not have noticed the defect, went over it at speed and was launched into the air. When the vehicle landed, the driver lost control of it, drove through the median, and then across the lanes on the other side of the highway before coming to a stop in the grass on the side of the road.

Uneven pavement can be incredibly dangerous, but luckily no one was injured. If you have been hurt in a car accident caused by a roadway defect, contact the Appleton car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
