36-year-old David Webb was monitoring the desert near Why, Arizona in his work-issued Chevy Tahoe truck on November 3, 2006 when a tragic series of events caused the Border Patrol agent’s untimely death. First, the tread separated from one of the truck’s rear tires, causing Webb to loose control of the vehicle. When the truck flipped over, the roof of the vehicle caved completely in, causing the fatal head and brain injuries that doctors say caused Webb’s demise. Last week, Webb’s surviving family members, including a wife and two young children, filed suit against both General Motors and Continental Tires, claiming that defects and safety problems with both the vehicle and the tires directly contributed to Webb’s death.
