I spent many years in public safety and responded to many similar accidents. If you look at the drivers side front tire in the photo, you can see that it isn't there. Whether it's gone or shredded isn't important. What is important is that there's a good possibility that that tire caused the rollover accident. Most times tires fail on rollover accidents due to lack of maintenance, ie. being worn out, have low air pressure, or old age. Vehicle maintenance is very important, especially where your tires are concerned.
