BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota woman has sued Wal-Mart claiming that she crashed on the interstate because of a tire was improperly mounted at a store in Watertown last year.

The Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/1OsqMtm ) reports Rudy Anderson argues in the federal lawsuit filed this week against the retailer that the store failed to correctly mount the wheel and tire on the front driver’s side in December. She says the wheel and tire came off a week later while she was driving on Interstate 29, causing a crash.

Anderson says she injured her shoulder and head in the incident, and her medical bills amount to more than $30,000.

Anderson is seeking “fair and reasonable” damages. Wal-Mart did not immediately return a call from the newspaper seeking comment on the lawsuit.
