Nine people were injured recently in a July 1 single-vehicle accident on Interstate 4 near mile marker 57 near ChampionsGate golf course. Florida Highway Patrol officers say that a 2000 Ford Excursion was traveling eastbound on I-4 at the posted speed limit when one of the right tires burst, causing the large SUV to rotate counterclockwise and into the median. The SUV then rolled and came to a stop on top of a guardrail. Emergency response personnel closed all lanes of I-4 in both directions to render assistance, and traffic was reportedly backed up more than ten miles.
Vacuum cleaner manufacturer Hoover has recalled more than 140,000 of its Hoover Wind Tunnel Canister Vacuums after dozens of reports of the vacuum overheating and starting fires. Hoover announced the recall at the request of the Consumer Product Safety Commission after receiving more than 70 reports from customers that the vacuum overheated while plugged into an outlet even after they turned it off. In one case, the vacuum caught fire and burned a section of carpet in the owner’s home.
