Man claims Mancuso Powersports was negligent after his wife died in crash from tire blow out


By Marian Johns | Feb 17, 2020


HOUSTON – The estate of a woman who died following the blow out of a rear wheel tire on a Cam-Am Spyder filed a claim against Mancuso Powersports, which installed the tire. 

Kenneth Collins, individually and as the representative of the Estate of Anita Collins; Monique Collins; and Kennth Collins Jr. filed a complaint Feb. 10 in the Harris County District Court against County Line Powersports North Corp., doing business as Mancuso Powersports North, alleging negligence and wrongful death. 

Mancuso Powersports installed a new rear-wheel tire on Anita and Kenneth Collins' Cam-Am Spyder on May 15, 2019. While driving on I-10 westbound near Lafayette, La., on May 26, 2019, the plaintiffs allege the rear tire's tread became separated, causing the Cam-Am to roll. Kenneth Collins sustained injuries, and Anita Collins died from her injuries two days later. 

The plaintiffs seek monetary relief between $1 million and $50 million, trial by jury, interest and all other just relief. They are represented by David Harris and Louie Cook of Sico Hoelscher Harris LLP in Corpus Christie.
