A blown left rear tire caused an SUV to go out of control and roll over Thursday, in Fremont County, sending four people to the hospital. Sheriff’s officials say a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada driven by 33-year old Shawna Caniglia, of Omaha, was traveling south in the 3000 block of Highway 59, when the incident occurred.

The SUV left the road when the tire blew out, and rolled nearly twice, ejecting three of four persons in the vehicle. The injured parties were transported by Shenandoah Rescue to hospitals in Shenandoah and Hamburg.

The names of the other persons were not released, and additional details are currently not available.
