There is a video of the wreck on u-tube or face-book that was taken by an 18 wheel driver the RV in question was passing. It did appear that the RV was going pretty fast which may have had something to do with the wreck. It was a front tire that was lost. I did not think too much of the cable system strung along the side of the roads but it did a GOOD JOB of keeping the RV from going straight across the medium into on-coming traffic, it rolled at least once before going into the East bound lanes.

I think there is a misception about not hitting the accelerator during a tire blow out. When a front tire blows, left or right, all of a sudden there is a side force trying to push the motorhome in the direction of the blow out produced by drag. By stepping on the accelerator and using steering inputs you are overcoming that drag and side force to keep the vehicle straight. You are just pushing the nose of the vehicle straight with the help of power. I don't think that you will accelerate very much if any with that amount of drag. This theory only works if you are not running high rpms, so the you have power to push the nose straight

Just looking at the Physics of the theory JMHO.
