From the Detroit News:

Washington— Continental AG’s North American unit is recalling 390,000 truck tires following a fatal crash involving a Ford pickup in September, the company announced Friday.

Most of the recalled tires were used as original equipment on new Ford F-250 and F-350 vehicles.

The company said 330,000 of the tires were used on new 2008-09 Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks, while the rest were sold as replacement tires on Ford and other trucks.

The recall by South Carolina-based Continental Tire was prompted after the company received notice in January of a fatality involving a vehicle with a tire that has now been recalled.

The company hasn’t identified a root cause of the crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Continental and Utah State police are trying to figure out if the tire was to blame.
